One of Tucson's best-loved Western bands, Way Out West, will team up with Nancy Ruybal of Katy Creek Band and Jeanne Cahill and Jerome Campbell, also known as Call of the West, Saturday at Abounding Grace Sanctuary.
The concert is from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at the sanctuary, 2450 S. Kolb Road, just north of East Golf Links. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Way Out West performs classic music of working cowboys, songs of Hollywood's singing cowboys, and its own songs and poetry.
The group is made up of Emmy Creigh on guitar and vocals, Slim Rost on bunkhouse bass and vocals, and Tom Poley on banjo, guitar and vocals.
Nancy Ruybal hails from Maricopa and has been performing with Wes Ruybal and various accompanying musicians as Katy Creek Band. They perform original Western Americana and cowboy poetry based on true, mostly true and entirely made-up stories.
On Saturday the musicians will be accompanied by Jeanne Cahill and Jerome Campbell, a multi-instrumentalist duo known as Call of the West. One of the instruments Cahill plays is a straight steel (non-pedal steel) guitar. This unique instrument has telescoping legs, so it can be played either sitting or standing.
Advance tickets are $15 online, all fees included. If not sold out, tickets are $20 cash at the door.
The concert is presented by the nonprofit Live Acoustic Venue Association.
