The High Country Cowboys from Red Lodge will bring their Winter Time Blues Western Music Show to Miles City on Saturday. The cowboys, Marty, John and Joe Kosel, will present their brand of classic Western music during the program.

The show starts at 7 p.m. in the Pioneer Memorial Hall at the Range Riders Museum. Tickets cost $20 each and are available at the Miles City Saddlery, 232-2512, or at the door the night of the performance. Children 10 years of age and under will be admitted free.

Born and raised in Montana, the three brothers were brought up in the heart of ranch country. Growing up, they watched old B-Western films. Those movies instilled in them their love of cowboy music.

They formed their group in 2014 and since then have been recognized by several associations around the country. Their traditional sound and three-part Western harmony has been compared to Marty Robbins and the Sons of the Pioneers.

Marty Kosel, the lead singer, was presented with the Western Music Association’s “Yodeler of the Year” award three times and once by the Pro Cowboy Country Artist Association. The group received the PCCAA “Music Group of the Year” award in 2017. Also in 2017, they received “Best Traditional Album of the Year” from the Western Music Association.

In addition to performing in The High Country Cowboys, the three brothers have other talents. Marty is a saddle maker and leather crafter, John is an awardwinning Western artist and Joe is a luthier who has made numerous guitars, two of which are played by his brothers in the band.
