“Hearing the Quebe Sisters sing is nothing short of mesmerizing.” The Washington Post
“Wylie’s music sounds like a penned-up horse set free to run and jump and kick. This guy can rock.” American Cowboy
Few places in the world capture the imagination like the American West. From the range, ranch, reservation and roadhouse, from the valley of the Rio Grande to the Bitterroot Mountains, Don’t Fence Me In explores the region’s celebrated musical and oral culture. Cowboy songs and poetry, high plains yodeling, western swing fiddle and vocal harmonies, lively Tex-Mex polkas and rancheras, and Northern Plains pow-wow drum and song are performed by an assemblage of exceptional artists – Wylie & The Wild West, The Quebe Sisters Band, Los Texmaniacs, North Bear, and rodeo poet Paul Zarzyski.
