The Carolyn Sills Combo is the 2020 NEXTie band of the year from Santa Cruz, CA, and the 2018 Ameripolitan Award for Western Swing Group. Their 2019 Marty Robbins-inspired album ‘Return to El Paso’ was nominated by The Academy of Western Artists for album of the year. Known for their signature ‘spaghetti western swing’ style, they had been touring extensively throughout the US before Covid hit, logging over 35,000 miles on their tour van. The Combo balances three part vocal harmonies with dueling guitar and non-pedal steel with witty, original songwriting. The band has shared the stage with the likes of Asleep at the Wheel, Riders in the Sky, Southern Culture on the Skids, Don Edwards and James Hand, and are excited to get back on the road once again.
