The Old West Trio is based in the foothills of Northern California’s gold country. Members Steve Ide (R), Leslie Ide (C), and Steve Johnson (L) perform traditional Western standards, cowboy ballads of every era, and yodeling tunes. They are members of the Western Music Association and co-founders of Scofield's Cowboy Campfire. The Old West Trio has performed from California to Montana, including the CM Russell Museum in Great Falls and the historic Silver Dollar Saloon in Jackson Hole. They've been featured radio guests on the Horsemen's Radio Weekly, Chronicle of the Old West, KVMR Backroads, and the Cowboy Music Roundup.
Humor and Harmony are the key words to discribe "The Scofield Brothers". Gary, Ron's younger brother has been playing the guitar, banjo and mandolin since a teenager and as in true Scofield tradition is self taught. Ron and Gary have a unique harmony that goes back to the days when they first began singing specials at church. As boys in Oregon they gained an appreciation for the American Cowboy on visits to their uncles ranch. Trips to the Hollywood radio studio in the late 1940s to watch the "Son's of The Pioneers" perform live influenced their love of Cowboy music. There is no end to the surprises, subject matter, and humerous situation you will hear when the Scofield Brothers are on stage.
