Chilliwack – Celebrating their historic 85th anniversary, the Sons of the Pioneers will ride into British Columbia for seven performances in October 2019.
Long regarded as the most influential and prolific Western music group, the Pioneers will be at the Hub International Theare/Chilliwack Cultural Centre on October 13. This will be a perfect concert for seniors and fans of “Old Country”, plus this is a matinee. A concert in the afternoon then you are off to your Thanksgiving Function.
Sons of the Pioneers are also performing in the Okanagan and the Kootaneys.
Come celebrate the group’s historic anniversary and meet Tommy Nallie (lead guitar and vocals), *Roy (Dusty) Rogers Jr., (MC, vocals), Ken Lattimore (vocals, fiddle), John Fullerton (vocals, rhythm guitar), Paul Elliott (fiddle), and Chuck Ervin (bass, vocals).
The Sons of the Pioneers are the gold standard for Western music, delivering thrilling harmonies, iconic yodeling, and poetic images of the West. Signature songs like “Cool Water,” “Tumbling Tumbleweeds,” and “Ghost Riders in the Sky,” forever rooted in Western lore, are stirring new audiences of all ages. Both “Tumbleweeds” and “Cool Water” have been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
*Roy Rogers Jr., “Dusty” is the son of the King Of the Cowboys – Roy Rogers Sr.
Roy Sr. Founded the band in 1934 with Bob Nolan and Tim Spencer. Today “Dusty” Rogers is the M.C. for the Sons Of The Pioneers and sings middle harmony in the vocals- like his father did!
