Lauren Ambrose, perhaps best known for her dramatic role in the black comedy “Six Feet Under,” brings her latest musical project, the Northeastern Western Swing Explosion, to Club Helsinki in Hudson on Friday (May 30) at 9pm. She last appeared there in 2011.

The band, a kind of super-group comprised of members of many of the region’s top Americana bands, specializes in performing danceable renditions of beloved Western swing classics by the likes of Bob Wills & the Texas Playboys.

Although highly respected as an actress, Ambrose, who lives in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, is in fact a trained opera singer who studied voice and opera at the Boston University Tanglewood Institute in Lenox, Mass.
