Greetings from Santa Clarita! Mark your calendars ladies and gentlemen…
We are thrilled to share that 2013 marks the 20th Anniversary of the Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival, which will once again take place at Melody Ranch ™ Motion Picture Studio and at other venues in the Santa Clarita Valley, April 18-21, 2013. Special thanks to the Veluzat family for welcoming us to their spectacular home and the perfect setting for the Festival.
As always, the Cowboy Festival will feature the best in Western gear, food, clothing, living history exhibits, and of course some of the world’s best Cowboy musicians and poets. The 2013 Festival will feature outstanding performers on a variety of stages, including The Riders in the Sky, Baxter Black, Don Edwards, Hot Club of Cowtown, The Sons of the San Joaquin, Sourdough Slim, Ginny Mac and The Saddle Cats, and two new young talents – Kristyn Harris and The Haunted Windchimes, just to name a few. Poets Pat Richardson, Andy Nelson and Joe Herrington will spin tales of the West and the Battalion Band of California will return with their authentic 19th century Civil War music. And the Festival’s Medicine Show Stage will feature saloon pianist, David Bourne, magician Pop Haydn, banjo master John Reynolds and gun spinner Joey Dillon. There will also be Western, Native American and Hispanic song and dance to delight guests of all ages.
