Fiddlin’ Sam and the Golden Bolo Band
Fiddlin’ Sam and the Golden Bolo Band, the St Louis Western Swing supergroup, comes to the Focal Point on Friday, January 24. This nine-piece band, including four of the city’s best fiddle players, draws from the songbooks of Bob Wills, Roy Rogers, Milton Brown and others from Western Swing’s heyday of the ’30s thru ’50s. Bandleader Sam Golden’s faithful transcriptions and adaptations capture the romping energy and enduring melodies of both old favorites and deeper cuts. The band features faces familiar to any St Louis music fan, including Kevin Buckley, Jenny Roques, Ryan Koenig, Alena Wheeler, Abbie Steiling, Nigel Solomon, Richard Tralles, and Fred Gumaer.
Golden Bolo Company, sponsor of the Golden Bolo Band, will be at the event with one-of-a-kind custom bolo ties for sale!
