Western music celebrates the life of the cowboy on the open ranges and prairies of Western North America.  Local musicians dedicated to preserving and promoting this legacy will perform original as well as traditional western music and poetry.  Artists scheduled to appear include:

Jon Messenger (Saturday only) – is a singer/songwriter whose music is a hearty stew concocted from the influences of an eclectic musical background. Influenced by everything he’s heard, Jon’s original Folk and Western tunes have been well received by audiences at festivals and gatherings throughout the West. These songs reflect Jon’s love of the myth, beauty, spirit and truth of the American West. Jon’s vocal and acoustic guitar stylings blend together to bring a haunting and authentic portrait of cowboy life, past and present. Jon also shares selections of Cowboy Poetry from both traditional authors and his own pen. Jon’s voice has been called the “best story-telling voice in contemporary western music”. Rich, warm, and evocative of whatever feeling is in the heart of the tune.
