THE WESTERN FLYERS
The Western Flyers are one of the most exciting
new bands to glide onto the music scene in years. Their
music is a distinctive cross section of the Great American
Songbook: authentic Western swing, hot jazz and swing
standards, cowboy songs and electrifying old-time fiddle
Internationally renowned guitar master Joey
McKenzie drives the train with his powerful rhythm, while
reigning National Swing Fiddle champion Katie Glassman
and world-class upright bassist Gavin Kelso add fuel to
the fire. A blending of tradition and innovation, The
Western Flyers are a singular musical experience; a fresh
take on a venerable American art form performed by three
virtuosos of the genre. With international tours under
their belt and debut album reaching #1 on the FAR / American
roots charts, they are a band in full swing.
