Sid Hausman

Sid Hausman is a wrangler, trailrider, cowboy and genuine personality of the Southwest, who specializes in writing and performing music of the American Southwest. A real wrangler from Tesuque, NM, Sid tours both U.S. coasts and Europe annually and performs at many Western Music Festivals. In addition, he was a New Folk Finalist at Kerrville in 1977.

Sid's "November Moon" and "Los Estados Unidos" (Geronimo's Land CD) are included in the soundtrack for the highly-acclaimed (and possibly Academy Award nominated) documentary "Cochise County USA - Cries from the Border" .

"Hausman's Music and Songs are an amalgam of folk, bluegrass and cowboy ballads. His songs evoke and salute the Spanish, Indian and pioneer legacies that are such an important part of the Southwest . . . Hausman's banjo picking is very impressive." - Dirty Linen

"Akin to Guthrie, Rogers and Williams, his songs vibrate with personality and consummate musicianship, flowing with visual images of old America." - Folk Roots Magazine, England
