Project Name

With a  new age take on ol'time stringband, country blues, bluegrass, rock an celtic music, the Gypsy Cowboys bring an  energetic eclectic take on Americana music. Members, Carl Besece, Erek Gildow and Stephen Kelner hail from the rustbelt of the Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania borders. By no means, are they a bluegrass/stringband, yet it can be seen, felt and heard in their music.

A sound and presence boiled in the copper vats of the Appalachian mountains, the skylines of the Rockies to the shadow Denali, these fellas cross generational divides to bring you their unrestrained brand of Americana roots music.............. 100 proof....Thrashin' Appalachian  Americana.
