Fiddler Johnny Gimble And The Texas Swing Pioneers Live At Austin City Limits Singing Right or Wrong & Truck Drivers Blues


Fiddler Johnny Gimble is an Austin music icon who has played with every great local musician at one time or another throughout his fabled career including Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Dan del Santo, Waylon Jennings and so many more. One of the all time favorite Austin City Limits program was when Johnny put together the Texas Swing Pioneers which included fiddler/singer J. R. Chatwell, piano Frank Renou, steel guitar Deacon Anderson, fiddler Cliff Brunner, guitar Zeke Campbell, banjo Marvin Montgomery….and of course, fiddler Johnny Gimble. The music known as Texas Swing Music is unique unto itself…..cuz the truth is that if you are gonna play music in Texas….you better have a fiddle in the band.
