Presenting spot on renditions of some of the greatest western tunes of all time, the Old West Trio balances silver-screen harmonies and newly minted cowboy classics with a dose of humor. The trio earned the Will Rogers Award for 2011 Best Western Music Duo/Group of the Year (Academy of Western Artists). Members are Steve Ide (rhythm guitar), Leslie Ide (upright bass), and Steve Johnson (lead guitar).
Among their travels throughout the western US, the Old West Trio makes guest appearances at Scofield's Cowboy Campfire in Fiddletown, California. They helped launch the popular chuck wagon dinner and cowboy music and poetry program in 1997.
