National Cowboy Poetry Gathering on the Road
RENO, Nev. (April 7, 2016) – Even after the Reno Rodeo is over, the boot stomping, dust kicking and western fun continues during Artown when Artown and the Reno Rodeo Foundation Present: National Cowboy Poetry Gathering on the Road at Bartley Ranch, Thursday, July 21.
Artown and the Reno Rodeo Foundation have teamed up to present this event, intended to celebrate the cultural arts of Nevada’s long and rich western heritage. The event will include performances from western artists along with various western heritage demonstration activities.
Attendees can look forward to performances by Andy Hedges, a songster, reciter and guitarist with eight albums, who’s varied repertoire includes classic cowboy recitations, old cowboy songs, dust bowl ballads and blues; Brenn Hill, a singer/songwriter whose trials and tribulations as a cowboy have inspired the raw material he uses to pour his heart and soul into performing; and Trinity Seely, who won Western Music Association and Academy of Western Artists’ Song of the Year in 2014 for “Cowboy Hat” and uses her honey-smooth voice to sing about loving cowboys, horses and living in the middle of no where.
