The Westerlees

The Westerlees are like old-fashioned, country-baked pie. They don’t make them much like that anymore, but every time you taste one you wonder why not.
Steel Guitar, Fiddle, Clarinet, and more all come together to deliver wholesome (and perhaps more often, daringly tart) tunes from the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. Everything from the Light Crust Doughboys to Bob Wills to Hank Williams is performed with levity and humor. Rare and popular swing dance standards are carefully selected and arranged for maximum danceabilty. They also have many original tunes that capture the drollery of the Western Swing genre.
