What better way to help kick off Big Week than a bunch of cowboys telling cowboy stories while attendees sip wine and eat barbecue? The California Rodeo is pleased to announce the 2016 Cowboy Music & Poetry Gathering to be held Sunday July 17th at Sherwood Hall. The headliner this year will be the one and only Dave Stamey!!! Singing with him is Annie Lydon. Our poet this year is Larry Maurice from Reno, NV. A local Band - Los Vaqueros Hunting Club Traveling Band-will also be playing and the MC is, of course, our own Clem Albertoni.There will also be a special performance from Chyrle Bacon. She’s been performing for 42 years ~ roping, whip cracking and gun twirling.
Doors open at 1:00pm, there will be a barbeque available for purchase, tickets are $10. Attendees can also taste wine and receive a souvenir wine glass for $10. The cowboy poetry starts at 1:45pm with an open mic session, and tickets for this portion of the event are $30.
