From West of the freeway in Northern Utah come Western Music Association performers STAMPEDE! – a multi-award winning Western music duo that brings good music (classic and original), harmony, humor and just down right good fun to the stage. They will be performing at OutWest in downtown Newhall on Main Street this Saturday night.
Performing at venues ranging from state fairs to county fairs; large gatherings to small neighborhood BBQs, STAMPEDE! delivers the absolute best every time and will leave you either laughing or crying, but you’ll go away knowing you have been entertained by one of the best groups in Western Music today.
STAMPEDE! is made up of the husband/wife team of Steve Taylor, “The Safest Driver in the West” and pretty darn good on that upright bass and Terri Taylor, dubbed “The Epiglottis Goddess” and labeled “a Triple Threat” by Ranger Doug of Riders In The Sky.
Terri is a two-time award winning yodeler and an award-winning singer/songwriter and received the Song of the Year Award from the WMA in 2005 for her song titled, “Colors (of the West).” In 2006, she was listed in the Top 5 for Collaboration of the Year between poet and musician with Curly Syndergaard for “Where the Wild Horses Run.” In 2009, she again made the Top 5 in the Song of the Year category for her song, “The Wyoming Waltz.”
They were also recognized by the Western Music Association with the Crescendo Award in 2006.
STAMPEDE! has been performing throughout the West since 2000 and has been going strong since then averaging 250 performances a year. (For a period of time, they performed as a trio). They have opened for or shared the stage with major headliners including Riders In The Sky, Roy Rogers, Jr., The Sons of the Pioneers, Dan Seals, Rex Allen, Jr., Wylie and the Wild West, Baxter Black, Red Steagall, Don Edwards and Waddie Mitchell and Belinda Gail.
Opening for STAMPEDE! is Santa Clarita favorite son John Bergstrom.
“You can almost smell the campfire smoke” is what fans have said about John’s performances of both traditional and original songs from and about the West. His ballad of the bandit Black Bart was featured on national TV on “The Heart of Western Music,” episode 4, “The Good, The Bad, The Bergstrom.” He performs throughout Southern California and makes visits to Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. His shows are intended for the whole family to enjoy, at coffee houses, community events, festivals, and house concerts.
