This rendezvous scheduled on March 4, 2011 and March 5 is a reunion of western musicians, cowboy poets, and artisans to promote the culture of western life here in the beautiful Cache Valley of Northern Utah, located 90 miles north of Salt Lake City.
The Main Auditorium will feature the Bar J Wranglers from Jackson Hole Wyoming in concert along with guests: Canadian Songwriter – Eli Barsi, Cowboy Poet & Humorist – Andy Nelson and National Yodeling Champion – Larry Wilder. Concerts will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Friday March 4, 2011 with a matinee concert on Saturday March 5, 2011 at 2:00 p.m.
On Friday evening and all day Saturday there will be a continuous round of Cowboy Poetry and Western Music on three stages – two of which will be for ‘published’ and/or ‘professional’ performers, one being an ‘open mic’ stage for local, and/or unpublished performers. Each poet will be given a 10 minute time slot, with musicians receiving 20 minutes.
