Syd Masters, middle, gets ready to take flight musically with his Swing Riders: guitarist Craig Rivera, left, and bass player Gary Roller.

Live at La Fonda
With his band, the Swing Riders, Masters introduces audiences to classic cowboy music: old trail songs from the 1800s, Western swing from the 1940s and ’50s, and his like-sounding originals. “I call my music ‘vintage Western cowboy swing,’” quips Masters. “I’m a cowboy song historian.”

You won’t be hearing just another band when he plays La Fiesta Lounge. A full-time musician for 15 years, Masters has won scores of awards, including Best Male Vocalist, Country Song of the Year, and Best Humorous Song from the New Mexico Music Industry Association.

“We don’t play out much anymore,” says Masters, meaning besides concert venues. La Fonda is the sole exception, “because we get to see people we know from Santa Fe — the dancers come out, and people who have been seeing my shows for years.” He performs at La Fonda, in other words, for his own fun.
