The trio also received the 2011 Western Duo-Group of the Year and was a top-five nominee for 2014 Western Duo-Group of the Year by the Academy of Western Artists.

Members are Steve Ide on rhythm guitar and vocals, Leslie Ide on upright bass, backing vocals and commentary, and Steve Johnson on lead guitar and vocals.

“I am thrilled that we are able to bring The Old West Trio back to Carson Valley,” said Events Manager Kim Harris. “They are extremely talented, genuine and a whole lot of fun.”
