3 Trails West is passionate about vintage Western Music. We've dug deep to uncover recordings that got left in the dust. Our journey has taken us down some old rutted swales, "Trails Less Traveled", you might say. We hope our music sounds familiar in the way that only a good Cowboy song can; like putting on a favorite shirt, a little faded and frayed at the collar, but more comfortable for the wear.
Their approach is drawn from the Silver Screen Era of Cowboy Music and Bob Wills-style swing. Laced with humor and audience interaction, 3TW is a family-oriented show band. They also spend as much as they make on Wardrobe, so their on-stage appearance is an eye-catching sight.
3 Trails West is comprised of a tight vocal trio/rhythm section backed by a “Cowboy Orchestra” including accordion, fiddle and steel guitar. Formed in 2006, they are the recipients of the 2011 Crescendo Award from the International Western Music Association. They are also finalists in the Category of Swing Album of the Year for 2014 and 2018. They were awarded the 2015 “Duo/Group” of the year from the IWMA and also the Academy of Western Artists.
