The Western Family Orchestra is a Grand Ole Oprystructured show, roving from town to town, leaving a trail of misty-eyed sweethearts. It cant be tamed, and follows its crazy heart, the lonesome trains whistle, and the wayward wind all at the same time, if you get where were going with this. Its an indie-country supergroup, wrangled by Lee Bob Watson, Tom Heyman, two guys from Cake, and a herd of other fine, fine musicians who play the great songs of our land some their own, and some very beautiful ones written by a guy named Traditional. The WFO makes friends wherever it goes, and when it drifts into our town, its saddling up with two of the finest pickers this side of the Mississippi, Kelley Stoltz and Sarah Bethe Nelson. Dust off your hat, mosey, etc.
