BIO

For over two decades, the Old West Trio has performed western tunes from the American Cowboy and Silver Screen songbooks. With harmony like the Sons of the Pioneers and humor reminiscent of the Smothers Brothers, the trio is true to the craft of folk music and family entertainment. Their sixth studio album, "What's Left of the West" explores cinematic themes and California locales with a kiss of romance and a smack of frontier farce. Will Rogers award recipients for Best Western Duo/Group of the Year, members are Steve Ide (the big yodelator on rhythm guitar), Leslie Ide (upright bassist and de facto den mother), and Steve Johnson (sporting an award winning moustache and playing lead guitar). They co-founded Scofield’s Cowboy Campfire, the only chuck wagon event of its kind in California.
