A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Little Buckaroos Rodeo Association, a non-profit dedicated to keeping the love of rodeo alive. The association teaches young people the correct and safe way to rodeo and promotes good sportsmanship and gives participants a fun and safe environment to learn and practice their rodeo skills.
The evening’s line up will include WMA’s Album of the Year and Female Vocalist Nominee, Trinity Seely, of Martin’s Cove, Wyoming; Academy of Western Artist’s Top Male Vocalist in 2009, Daron Little, who cowboys for a living fulltime on the Headquarters Division of the Silver Spur Ranches near Encampment, Wyoming; two-time Male Vocalist Nominee JC Needham and Sonja of Utah’s Western Desert, who make up The Buckaroo Balladeers; and special guest, ten-year-old cowboy poet, Thatch Elmer, son of cowboy poet, Brad Elmer and wife, Kim. Thatch started out reciting his dad’s poems and now writes and recites his own.
The event was inspired by a cowboy poet, Tyler Guy, who helps run a family ranch in Grantsville, Utah. He felt there was a need and an audience for a show that brought western music and poetry together in an intimate setting. Guy, who lives with his wife Sylvia in Tooele, will emcee the event and share some of his poetry.
Tickets are $12 if pre-ordered and $15 at the door. For more information visit: Western Song.
