In the spirit of our western heritage, we invite you to an intimate evening of Cowboy poetry.
A sometimes forgotten art form that has been carried on, mostly in the oral tradition, for over a century, cowboy poetry has stood the test of time as a vital part of our western, ranching and cowboy heritage.
Four of the country's best and most awarded contemporary cowboy poets will entertain and enlighten us with poems both classic and contemporary, some serious and some funny, it will be an event you will not soon forget.
