A pinch of classic, a hint of hick, a fistful of talent and a whole lot of kick!" Rawhide n' Rosin combine smooth soulful ballads, and energetic bluegrass with jazz, swing, and traditional old-time music for a combination that will appeal to any and all. Audiences are delighted with their polished, professional sound as well as their down to earth personalities and easy-going humor.
Rawhide n' Rosin is a brand new trio, consisting of the duo of Vince & Mindi with the new addition of fiddler Shelby Murdock, performing Western & American Roots music. Rawhide n' Rosin draw from Swing, Cowboy, Bluegrass, & Old Time with some original material. They interject humorous & interesting stories, often from their own life experiences of family & ranching in the west. The arrangements are tight and energetic with fun harmonies and yodels. They always include fiddle & twin fiddle tunes as well as spirited instrumentals on mandolin or guitar.
In 2008 Vince and Mindi received the Western Music Association's Harmony Duo of The Year Award and in 2011 were nominated for the WMA Crescendo Award. The first Two Vince and Mindi CD's "Longing for The Range" & "Where the West Begins" have both spent time in the top 20 play-list charts of the Westen Music Association.
Shelby graduated in 2017 with an Honors Bachelor of Music Education. Shelby has won her share of titles as a fiddler, some of which include Fanciest Fiddler and Best Female Entertainer at the National Oldtime Fiddlers' Contest. She is active in the western fiddle community as an excellent teacher, judge and competitor. She has brought a real spark of energy and fun dimension of entertainment to this new union.
