Folks I'd like for you to meet Prairie Wind, and here's a few things we'd like to say about the boys.
First of all Coyote Joe. Joseph Coyote Sartin, born in N.E. Oregon near Pendleton, OR. and raised on the Duck Reservation in Northern Nevada only to return to the home ranch outside of Pendleton to learn the life of a cowboy from the men who lived the life everyday.
Learning the songs of the range and of the way of life of the cowboys, led to his understanding of how the music was to be played and sung.
Singer, songwriter, and guitar player, Joseph Sartin better known as Coyote Joe among listeners and on stage through out the West is a true cowboys cowboy at heart and in song, he lived the life and now shares it with you through his music.
Our second member of this Western duo is Joe McCutcheon, better known as Little Joe by other performers and folks that know him and have known him for a long time. He's been playing and singing for the past forty years by himself and with several other bands, such as, Shanook Winds, Tha Shanako Band, and a little bluegrass band. Little Joe is also an accomplished bassist and drummer.
Teaming up with Coyote Joe a little over eight years ago, Little Joe adds the harmony and fine guitar accents to the music the duo play together.
So, sit back, relax, and close your eyes, and witness what most folks only hear about.........
