About

The Windsor Creek Trio

We have traveled the world and we can’t wait to entertain your corner of it!

Who are the Windsor Creek Trio?

As one of America’s longest running folk music acts, they find themselves among an elite group of entertainers that include The Kingston Trio, Peter Paul & Mary, and The Limelighters. The Windsor Creek Trio have performed for presidents and have toured with acts as diverse as Bob Hope, Roy Rogers, Bobby Vee and The (formerly Dixie) Chicks.

Through various incarnations for 55 years, The Windsor Creek Trio has toured the world playing great American music in a show that appeals to every generation. Each performance excites, inspires and entertains, evoking musical memories for some and introducing new generations to the immortal music of the American West.

The Windsor Creek Trio’s strength is its history. Having served this country as career Air Force veterans, they understand the importance of the American way of life and the challenges that have always faced her citizens. Their current “Under American Skies” tour is a tribute to America’s resilience in the face of adversity.

Blending beautiful three part harmonies, humor and skillful instrumentation, your audience will be thoroughly entertained.

If you’re looking for a show that inspires as well as entertains, then the Windsor Creek Trio is perfect for you.

Meet the band

Col Dave Woodruff (USAF Ret) founded the group in Albuquerque, New Mexico at the University of New Mexico in 1968. Dave’s father, TD, was bass player for Len Slye who would go on to become Roy Rogers. Modeled in part after the Kingston Trio, the group began playing a mix of traditional folk music and originals. Dave went on to record as an artist for Capitol Records. Dave plays acoustic and electric guitar, banjo and supplies the lead vocals. His jokes are terrible.

Col George Giganti (USAF Ret) has been with the band for over 40 years. After leaving the Air Force, he and his wife and family settled on the Emerald coast of the Florida panhandle. George became a pilot for Northwest Airlines, once again, traveling the world. George is probably the most talented of the group, playing guitar, a smokin’ banjo, harmonica and just about any instrument he takes a fancy to.

Jose Antonio Ponce is the youngster of the group. He joined some 30 years ago when the group’s bass player retired to enjoy the married life. Jose spends his free time writing books, working in film and TV as an actor, producer and screenwriter. He maintains the group’s website. (Dave wanted to know how much Jose was paid to list George as the most talented member of the band. Surprisingly, not that much.) Jose also plays bass for the group and sings high harmony.
