Today we visit with Paul Chesterton of Old Tire Swingers, a bluegrass band hailing from Fresno’s Tower District. Old Tire Swingers are the latest link in an unbroken chain of the living tradition which is folk music. Old Tire Swingers chose to plant roots in blue grass, although they are known to play anything from Journey to Sublime. Their style is mostly old time string band music with touches of country, bluegrass, and Americana. They play originals, traditional American, and cover songs.
