The Gimbles- Full Band
This show will be set up "DANCE STYLE" at the Civic Center in Pfluger Park
The Gimbles is comprised of the second and third generations of legendary Texas music family. Dick is the son of the iconic Johnny Gimble - Johnny is considered to have been the finest fiddler to ever play with Bob Wills, the King of Western Swing. Playing alongside the elder Gimble for five decades, Dick accessed the kind of musical knowledge and nuance that only that kind of intimate relationship can impart. Third generation Emily has continued the tradition by playing actively with both over two decades but also working with her contemporaries to recharge the music.
The Gimbles is a mix of Western Swing, Swing standards from the 30s & 40s, some honky tonk and country blues, and a healthy sampling of Johnnys own beloved compositions. Emily and Dick perform as a duo, but also as a trio with one of Johnnys notable disciples, including such accomplished fiddlers as Wes Westmoreland, Jason Roberts, Randy Elmore, Katie Shore, and Warren Hood.
