Saturday live: Rio Bravo

When pedal steel guitarist Sveinung Lilleheier joined Toini & the Tomcats in 2001, the band Rio Bravo was in the making. It didn’t take long before Arne, Toini and Sveinung started talking about some of their favourite music – C&W and rockabilly roots. When drummer Bjørn Haglund and guitar man Ian Johannessen joined their ranks, they spirited up some Johnny Horton classics and 60’s country stuff Tammy Wynette and Nancy Sinatra style. Now the Rio Bravo reportoire covers six decades – from the earliest recordings of Jimmie Rodgers to Patsy Montanas yodeling, from Patsy Clines honkytonk to Crystal Gayles smooth sounds. But most of the time they’re rockinandarollin’!
