ABOUT THE ARTISTS
The Munsick Boys
The unique aspect of The Munsick Boys band is that their music is a combination of four different western styles that are united by their family ties. They have been playing together for all of their lives and began playing professionally 10 years ago. They participate in horsemanship clinics, help out at local brandings, and do day work on neighboring ranches. Tris trains horses, works in the ag industry, and plays music throughout the West. Sam works as a rancher. He plays and writes his own brand of western music for both the open public and the ranching community. Ian has gained enormous popularity within the millennial generation as a link between modern-day urban life and the timeless appeal of the genuine West. The boys perform an annual sellout concert at the WYO Theater in Sheridan and perform dances, concerts, and festivals around the West. They all continue to release their own music as well as Munsick Boys songs. They were selected as the AWA Country Band of the 2016.
