KPBX Kids' Concert: Western Reunion, Part Two

Listeners of all ages will journey back in time to the old west as they listen to cowboy music and poetry originally recorded and performed in front of a live audience at The Bing Crosby Theater in April 2015. The four-piece band plays a variety of great cowboy songs and western swing numbers to get your toes tapping and singing-a-long.

About Western Reunion

Band members are Bill Siems, lead guitar and mandolin, Dawn Holladay, lead vocals and guitar, Michael Gifford, vocals and washtub bass, and Don Thomsen, fiddle. The group plays around the Northwest at festivals, concerts, fairs, and has played for multiple KPBX Kids’ Concerts.

Verne Windham got his start at Spokane Public Radio 20 years ago. “I came in to complain and they hired me.” He’s now the Program Director, as well as the host of Morning Classical and Concert of the Week. When choosing music for Morning Classical, Verne likes to keep the agenda as broadly defined as possible. For Concert of the Week, he focuses on the best of recent local performances, mostly classical in nature. For many years, Verne was also the conductor of the Spokane Youth Orchestra. He enjoys gardening, his vintage car and playing French horn.
