The 27th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering will take place January 24-29th, 2011in Elko Nevada. I haven’t been to this event yet but I think it would be really cool. I guess I’m not too far away being in Las Vegas, NV right now. I know one person who will be there next week is fellow Canadian Corb Lund. I would darn sure bet on Canadian Legend Ian Tyson also being there. I had the chance to meet Waddie Mitchell in Hobbs, NM when I was at school there too and I know he should be there. I will put a video or two from him up on here in the future too.
You can find a link to more information on the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering on the Western Folklife Website below.
I also found a cool video showing just what the experience in Elko would be like for anyone who is wondeirng just what the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering is like. Check it out right here and let me know what you think.
For those of you that have been there what can you tell everyone else about it? I would sure like to know more. I am considering making my way up there next week and would like to know some more information first hand. I would really appreciate some comments on your experiences and I’m sure others in my situation would too!
