Steve Jones and John Fisher     


John Fisher of the Yampa Valley Boys
John plays a 5-String banjo in the old time frailing style. In addition to mandolin and octave mandolin, he plays resonator guitar in our shows. He does lead and harmony vocals, and spins tall tales in story and poem.
Steve is a singer-songwriter. He plays guitar. He has written many of the songs recorded by the Yampa Valley Boys, and does many of the lead vocals plus harmony vocals, poems and stories.. One of Steve’s songs has charted in the “Top Ten” on the Academy of Western Artists ratings chart for western songs in the spring of 2007. Recently, several fellow performers dubbed him the “Cowboy Irish Tenor.” He has developed an Irish theme in several of the songs that he has written and is performing, which can be heard in his latest CD, That Irish Kid.
