Sidekicks and Sagebrush (Seamus Kennedy)

 

• Label: Gransha Records

• ©Copyright-Seamus Kennedy (884502273557)

 

        As a kid growing up in Belfast, I really loved the old Western movies with the singing cowboys – Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Rex Allen, Tex Ritter, Eddie Dean; and the non-singing ones like Hopalong Cassidy, the Durango Kid and Lash LaRue; and their sidekicks – the Andys ~ Devine and Clyde; the Fuzzys ~ Knight and St. John; Smiley “Frog” Burnette; and of course the inimitable King of the Sidekicks ~ George “Gabby” Hayes.
        And here’s a tip o’ the Stetson to their musical groups - particularly Bob Nolan and the Sons Of The Pioneers (who occasionally doubled as sidekicks), for their dazzling harmonies and instrumentation, and for all the classic Western songs like Tumbling Tumbleweeds, Cool Water and Way Out There. (Seamus Kennedy)
