The Crunchy Western Boys
The Crunchy Western Boys The forefathers of "crunchy western" music Jim McHugh, Morris Manning, Steve McBrian, and Jacob Stern deliver a homegrown, crunchy cookin' performance with mando, bass, fiddle, guitar, dobro, and vocals. Their unique sounds are sure to tame the wildest beast or maybe even awaken the spirit within. The Crunchy Western Boys have sold well over 2000 copies of their recent record 'The Crunchy Western Boys' featuring all original music by CWB members Morris Manning and Jim McHugh.

They've had great success touring Ireland in the past several years, having done three tours, with plans to return as soon as the new record is finished. This past summer the CWB traveled to Oregon where they took first place at the Northwest String Summit. Recently the band has played the second stage for Sugarland at Meadowbrook and have opened for numerous other bands including:

The Del McCoury Band

Yonder Mountain String Band

Allison Kraus and Union Station

The Charlie Daniels Band


New Riders of the Purple Sage
