The New Trapper Canyon Stringbusters, 2015

New Trapper Canyon Stringbusters

Don’t miss the live opening act by bluegrass sensations the New Trapper Canyon Stringbusters.  Come see them play prior to the IF4 film festival on Friday night.  The original Trapper Canyon Stringbusters started playing together in 1980 and were based out of Shell, Wyoming. The band formed when Tom McClure, Stoney Hibbard, and Dave Blackburn. Their first jam session lasted for several hours with very little being said as they sang their way in three-part harmony along to many of the bluegrass standards. Tom McClure on fiddle and mandolin was an award winning fiddle player who was a long time member of the Wyoming Old Time Fiddlers association. Stoney Hibbard, originally from upstate New York was their lead singer who was schooled in many of the great bluegrass vocalists including the Louvin and Osborne Brothers, and Reno and Smiley. Stoney loved the old sounds of the Louvin, and Osborne Brothers along with Reno and Smiley. He played a D-45 Martin guitar, strung heavy gauge strings  and set a hard driving rhythm along with raspy lead singing. His aggressive strumming had a tendency to break strings giving the band its name.

Dave Blackburn started playing the guitar and banjo at 16 years old and won several banjo contests back east. His first job as a forestry student out west was working for Tom in the Bighorn National Forest. The band traveled throughout western Wyoming doing gigs and attending Old Time Fiddlers Association jams for several years.
The New Trapper Canyon Stringbusters consist of original members, Tom McClure and Dave Blackburn along with Tom’s wife Leslie and Mark Miller. Leslie McClure a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, Dobro and Bass along with a silky toned voice to add a great dimension to the band. Mark Miller, a talented songwriter, also adds banjo, guitar and vocals to complete the 4 piece band. His song, “Backroads to Montana” is always a crowd favorite. The band has been able to reconnect through family ties to the Denver area. They performed at the last two Denver Flyfishing Shows before the Fly Fishing Film expo premier. Tom, Leslie and Mark also play in and around the Arvada area as the band, “Gone Before They Got There”.

 

Womens Showcase logoThe Denver Women’s Fly Fishing Showcase is a weekend program devoted to women-centered discussions, presentations, learning opportunities and networking. The Showcase is free with your entry to the Fly Fishing Show and will feature a diverse schedule of presentations.
