(2013/Westernswingers) 13 tracks (41:03) digisleeve - John England & the Western Swingers is a six piece band based in Nashville, TN, which plays the lively, happy music called Western Swing. Western Swing originally developed in Texas and Oklahoma during the 1930´s. With fiddle, steel guitar, piano, electric guitar, bass, and drums, it´s music for dancing and listening, and combines the down-home quality of country music with the sophistication and improvisation of hot jazz. The group has played their lively music at Nashville´s Robert´s Western World every Monday since July of 2001. The Swingers can also boast of appearances at New York´s Lincoln Center, the Grand Ole Opry, the Legends of Western Swing Festival, the ´Midnight Jamboree´, and many concerts and private events in the mid-South area.
