Started in central Kansas by brothers Roger Eilts and Leo Eilts, 3 Trails West plays several styles of western music, including old-time and western swing.
Currently based in the Kansas City area, 3 Trails West is best known for their complex vocalizations inspired by Sons of the Pioneers, and has performed coast to coast for different concert venues and local watering holes.
Roger Eilts plays rhythm guitar/lead and sings harmony vocals. Leo Eilts keeps the beat on the upright bass and sings harmony vocals. Marvin Gruenbaum keeps the music dancing with his fiddle. Jim Winters sings lead while playing guitar. Ken Lovern adds his amazing accordion while Bill Dye compliments the band playing steel guitar and guitar.
