HURON — The Huron Public Library will present Bob and Sheila Everhart’s “How Western Music Won the West,” Saturday at 5 p.m. in Campbell Park.
Bob and Sheila have been performing old-time and traditional acoustic music in the “Oh Brother Where Art Thou” style for all 26 years of their married life. The program is free to the public and family friendly.
“How Western Music Won the West” is an entertaining musical program of the very earliest cowboy and western songs along with the unusual stories associated with them.
Not only the songs themselves, but the writers and singers of them. Sometimes very funny, sometimes very sad.
The Everhart’s spent many hours researching the origin of western music. It is fascinating, historical, entertaining, and educational. Just right for an audience ready to have a good time as well as be entertained.
They will take you from the earliest cowboy singers right up to the days of Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. A memory adventure to be sure.
Bob and Sheila debuted this show in 2017, at the ranch home of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans.Don’t miss an opportunity to bring a whole new aspect to cowboy and western music to your life.
