Western Swing Trio

The Miners Foundry is pleased to present Western Swing Trio in the Upper Gallery on Sunday, November 27, 2022 from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.

The Western Swing Trio includes two current members and one future member of the Sacramento Western Swing Hall Of Fame. They play both Western Swing classics and originals featuring the “twin guitar” sound. Brett Cole grew up on a Christmas Tree farm in Newcastle, California, but decided to leave that glamorous life behind to see the world while playing bass with The Pyronauts, the Bob Woods Trio, and too many bands to name.  His folk EPs (A Place for My Heart,” “Dead Things Extra Teeth,” and “Keep Warm”) are now streaming.

Olen Dillingham has played fiddle and electric mandolin with Western Swing luminaries Carolyn Martin, Igor Glenn, Dave Stuckey, Jimmy Rivers, and former Texas Playboys including Tiny Moore and Vance Terry.  He has been a part of hometown favorites Cousin Cricket and the Stardust Cowboys.  Bob Woods plays guitar, steel guitar, and saxophone and has been playing professionally since 1971.  Bob and has played with his heroes including Albert Lee, Bill Kirchen, Tiny Moore, Ramblin Jack Elliot, and the Surfaris.  Bob is a member of the Earles of Newtown and Grease, Grit, and Grime. Bob has also been running trains for thirty years.
