Wyoming Arts Council

New Roster Artist: Bryan Ragsdale

As noted in a June 13 post, the Wyoming Arts Council has added eight new artists to its roster. The WAC now has 57 artists, writers, performers and folk artists eligible to be brought into Wyoming communities through its Arts Across Wyoming grants.

The new roster will be up on the web site early in July. You can view it — and find details about grants — on the WAC web site. The printed version of the roster will be inserted in the August issue of the newsletter.

Over the new few weeks, wyomingarts blog will highlight the new roster artists. Bryan Ragsdale (shown in accompanying photo by Linda Coatney) was one of the performers at last week’s NIC Fest in Casper. Here’s his info:

Bryan J. Ragsdale
Green River – singer/songwriter
Born in Wyoming’s high desert, Bryan comes from a long line of cowpokes and Wyoming heroes. He writes and sings songs about all things Wyoming, and is proud to be an outdoorsman, conservationist, husband, father and veteran. His performance on KTWO TV in February 2008 enabled him and his sponsors to send his CD, “Wyoming Melodies,” to hundreds of troops serving overseas. His song, Wyoming Melody, will debut in June as the theme song for the television show, “All Girl Getaways,” on Lifetime channel’s “Fine Living” series. He earns high praise for his presentation on composing songs, and his performances “leave a piece of Wyoming in everyone” that hears him.
