Way Out There
This group grew up in south central Texas and southern California, where they developed their interest in the music of the original Sons of the Pioneers. This interest soon became fascination, then dedication as their love for this music generated a devotion and passion which has stayed with them and grown all these many years. Not being 'people of means', they were not able to devote serious time to their music, although over the years it was a big part of their past time when possible to be together. They all found themselves working in various forms of engineering work and raised their families. When retirement age was approaching, they began to find opportunity to spend more time with their music, and first started 'going public' with it in 1993. Since that time they have been increasingly active in western music circles, attending various western music festivals and performing publicly at numerous venues around the country. In the later nineties they began recording and have now produced four original albums (two of which are available on CD's), nearly all songs and tunes of which are Sons of the Pioneers originals. Their fifth album is a composite of 31 songs from the four previous albums. This fifth album is entitled 'the best of The New Pioneers' and offered as a Special Limited Edition CD only.
