As part of the Cache Valley Cowboy Rendezvous, the Western Singing Duo TUMBLEWEEDS will perform. If you haven’t seen these guys performing around the valley on Saturday nights, here is your chance to see them in concert.
The formation of TUMBLEWEEDS was one of those chance happenings that just seemed to click. Steve Fillmore and “Ugly Earl” Bradley have an unlikely combination of comedy and acoustic western music that is pleasing and fun to listen to. Although both had played in other bands over the years, they found themselves performing together for many functions, and eventually formed the group, TUMBLEWEEDS. Their voices, both strong despite their age, plus Steve’s guitar and Earl’s bass form a unique full sound without any other instruments. Although they later added Earl’s banjo and harmonica, the original sound of their voices and these two instruments remain the backbone of their music.
Being raised in the forties and early fifties, both men have an extensive background of traditional western and grassroots country music to draw from, plus original music written by Steve and Earl.
In 2011 they produced a new CD, “The River Rolls Wild”. It boasts fifteen all original songs by Steve, which will be available at the Rendezvous, and also on itunes.
So if you like cowboy poetry, come see these guys live, and fill up on “Rooster’s Revenge”, “Birdhouses”, “Livin’ ‘Way Out” and “Jake, Wyoming Rancher”, plus some extemporaneous humor here and there- Enjoy!
