Discovering cow­boy cul­ture

Financial Chronicle - - MISCELLANY - FC BUREAU

IT al­ways amuses when rare events find places in our daily life and left an un­for­get­table mem­ory. Then brace your­self for the month end as cow­boys will be shar­ing their ex­pe­ri­ences in the form of po­etry.

The na­tional cow­boy po­etry gath­er­ing will take place at Elko, Nevada from Jan­uary 28 to Fe­bru­ary 3.

One can dis­cover horse­man cul­tures from around the world, learn a tra­di­tional skill, dance the two-step, plan for the West's fu­ture with ranch­ers and con­ser­va­tion­ists, watch home­made films of ru­ral life and meet new friends at the his­toric Pi­o­neer Sa­loon.

Get ready to “ex­pe­ri­ence to­day’s re­nais­sance of sto­ry­telling through po­etry, song, video, vis­ual art, new me­dia and more.”

Watch tra­di­tion re­spected and fu­tures em­braced with a line-up of favourite fa­mil­iar faces, plus a tal­ented bunch of new ones who are sure to make their de­buts to packed houses (be­cause it’s just that kind of crowd).

If you are ready for a western cultural bash that takes place as much on stage as off, in a town that truly rises to the oc­ca­sion, get your­self to Elko. Share a story and/or Bucka­roo Brew with soon-to-be­former strangers and be­come a part of the tra­di­tion.
