Music from the Ranch and the Open Range

September 7, 2017

Cowboy music has evolved from the open range and ranch employees who worked and rode after cattle during the late 19th and early to mid 20th century. These include songs written by ranch hands about horses, cattle and lost love. Others add death and the devil to the story. But all have in common the expression of what ranch and farm work was like during this time.

Steve Cormier performs these and also songs he has written, reflecting his years as a ranch and farm hand.

This program is free and open to the public.

Funded project of the New Mexico Humanities Council. The New Mexico Humanities Council is a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
