The Lincoln Theater is proud to present the 5th Annual Cowboy Music and Poetry Gathering as musicians, poets, and storytellers regale the audience with their experiences of hard work, heartbreak and hilarity in the West. Part of the world renowned Elko Cowboy Poetry Gathering, this event embodies the spirit and heart of a uniquely American way of life.
For more than 30 years, the ranchers, cowboys and artists at the Elko Cowboy Poetry Gathering have been sharing poems, stories and music about their lives, celebrating the shared traditions and experiences of the land and culture of the rural West. Elko brings together artisans who share their love of cowboy culture. Declared by journalists as “the most honest and open-hearted festival in America” and described by ranchers as “the highest concentration of lies in any one place at any one time,” Elko is the real deal.
“Whether California, Arizona, Mongolia or Brazil, if you are working close to the ground it doesn’t take long to find we have more in common than separates us and that’s what Cowboy Music and Poetry is all about,” says Arizona rancher and songwriter, Gail Steiger.
Lincoln Theater is thrilled to work with the Western Folklife Center to bring the 5th Annual Cowboy Music and Poetry Gathering to the Napa Valley community. Taking the stage this year will be Gail Steiger, joined by poet Olivia Romo and songwriter Mike Beck.
