About Kyle Dillingham & Horseshoe Road
Kyle Dillingham, who has performed in 41 different countries and on the Grand Old Opry stage, is known as America’s Violin Wizard. He can play with soul-wrenching passion or electrifying speed––even while riding on a skateboard!
Dillingham’s band, Horseshoe Road, includes Peter Markes and Brent Saulsbury. Together, they perform a blend of music that includes jazz, country, swing, gospel and rock, which they call ‘Heartland Americana.’ Horseshoe Road, formed in 2005, has shared the stage with country legends and pop superstars, performing throughout the world as musical ambassadors representing Oklahoma.
Edmond Historical Society & Museum is proud to present America’s first full exhibit dedicated to Kyle Dillingham, Peter Markes and Bent Saulsbury. This exhibit explores the musical expression of these three performers through their lives, travels and vast repertoire of music.
Highlights of artifacts on loan include concert and tour memorabilia from Horseshoe Road, the first musical instrument of each of the band member, handwritten scores and recordings, Dillingham’s purple performance suit designed by Manuel Cuevas, and the Dolly Parton skateboard Dillingham rode onto the stage of the Grand Ole Opry.
