Jackie Davidson started music at the age of 15 as a church organist. After college she joined the trio, The Randy Sparks 3 which later became the Grammy award-winning group, The New Christy Minstrels.

His multi-media program, “Land to the West,” has had over 300 performances across the country and his song, “Somewhere in Montana,” has been featured in western poetry publications. In their concert “Singin’ All the Good Old Songs Again,” they combine classic and original folksongs in an energetic, entertaining, and fun show with lots of audience participation and humor. They will also be including portions of their “Gordon Lightfoot Tribute” which Gary started in 2013.
