CANCELED — Cowboy Songs with John Stanley King and the Cowboy Songs Band
September 21 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm$15
Join us in the THEATRE 3 PLAYHOUSE for an evening of cowboy tunes, bluegrass, newgrass, and a hint of gypsy jazz! The reception begins at 5:00 p.m. and the concert follows at 6:00 p.m.
Cowboy songs existed before country music and became popular with a wider public in the ’30s and ’40s because of their use in western movies. Marty Robbins, Sons of the Pioneers, and others continued to record them, but they gradually faded into obscurity. With this project, we have revived the old tunes and found a renewed public interest in them.
