It is a pleasant surprise to find Bruce on the cover of the Winter 2015 edition of the Western Music Association’s Western Way Magazine. Inside is a good interview about Bruce's song writing.
2015 has been a productive year for Sidewinder and the shaping of their “Original Roots Americana” music direction. This year we have performed at many excellent venues including: Monterey Court, Tucson, AZ; Arizona Folklore Preserve, Sierra Vista, AZ; Coffee Gallery Backstage, Altadena, CA; San Diego Folk Heritage, Poway, CA; the Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society, Santa Clarita, CA; Adams Avenue Unplugged, San Diego CA; and Topanga Banjo & Fiddle Contest & Folk Festival, Agoura Hills, C. Upcoming gigs include: Outwest Concerts, Santa Clarita, CA; National Day of the Cowboy, Mountain Valley Ranch, Ramona, CA; Curly’s Cowboy Christmas Benefit and Dance, Victorville, CA; and return engagements with Coffee Gallery Backstage, Altadena, CA; and Arizona Folklore Preserve, Sierra Vista, AZ.
The biggest change in 2015 was the departure of original Sidewinder Mark Jackson from the group. We are happy to report that Mark is putting in the final touches on his first novel and has begun work on this second novel. We wish Mark great success in this wonderful direction he has taken.
Versatility is the key word with Sidewinder members Tom, Ken, and Bruce. With their eclectic musical backgrounds, they are able to perform at a variety of different venues, including Western, Bluegrass, folk, train oriented, and other Americana. Currently Sidewinder is working on sets featuring the songs of such greats as Bob Dylan, Tom Russell, Ian Tyson, Hank Williams, The Carter Family, Jimmy Rodgers, and Townes Van Zandt. Original songs written by Tom and Bruce are always at the core of all Sidewinder performances.
