Cowboy poems and songs at Kennedy Center

From http://www.cowboypoetry.com/:

Montana‘s “Polish-rodeo-hobo” poet Paul Zarzyski and top cowboy singer-composer Wylie Gustafson appear Tuesday, October 6, 2009 on the Millennium Stage at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. The event is broadcast live on the internet at 6 PM EST, and will be available on demand after the event. The performance is a part of the Homegrown: The Music of America concert series.

On October 7, Paul Zarzyski and Wylie Gustafson appear at the Library of Congress in a noon performance in a concert series co-presented by the American Folklife Center and the Music Division at the Library of Congress in cooperation with the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage.

Other cowboy and Western artists who have been a part of these series (and whose performances can be found on video from the The Kennedy Center Archive) include DW Groethe, The Quebe Sisters, The BAR-J Wranglers, Sourdough Slim, Jody Nix, Chuck Milner, and Liz Masterson and Sean Blackburn.

Wylie Gustafson and Paul Zarzyski collaborated on a recent, acclaimed CD, Hang-n-Rattle. Read our review here and visit http://www.wyliewebsite.com/ and http://www.paulzarzyski.com/ for more information.
