(Vocal/instrumental group, 1977–present)

Formed in 1977 by journalist and music historian Douglas Green (b. 1946), this trio (a quartet since 1988 when Joey Miskulin first played accordion with them) have kept alive the spirit and folklore of western cowboy songs – not least in their stage shows, which include expert yodelling – performing material associated with The Sons Of The Pioneers, Roy Rogers and Gene Autry in both an educational and entertaining fashion.
