Open Range & the Swing Stampede

 

“Music that captures the spirit of the West”…that’s how the music of Open Range has been described. Ric Steinke & Linda Hausler weave a musical blend of tight vocal harmonies & outstanding acoustic instrumentation. They perform music from the old western standards, to swing tunes of the 40’s, to western music being written today, including their own original compositions. Ric & Linda get their musical inspiration from the wide open spaces of Montana where they live in the Shields River Valley near Livingston, MT.  They perform as a duo, trio, or their  western swing band; Open Range & the Swing Stampede.
