All Radio Room performers have Colorado roots including:

  • Terry Nash, a top-five finalist for the Western Music Association Male Cowboy Poet of the Year for the past four years.
  • Peggy Malone, 2016 Colorado Country Music Hall of Fame Female Vocalist of the Year & Entertainer of the Year (2013),
  • Mesa Rancher Nona Kelley Carver who refers to her poetry as “fiction with a few facts thrown in.”

Bill Clark is true to his cowboy roots in the life he leads and songs he writes

says Museums Executive Director Dr. Peter Booth.

About The Event

Local & National Cowboy Poets & Musicians

Cowboy poetry grew from a time when, after a day of work, cowboys would gather around the campfire to occupy and entertain one another with tall tales and folk songs. This form of poetry grew out of a tradition of extemporaneous composition carried on by workers on cattle drives and ranches.

Cowboy poetry continues to be written and celebrated today through events like the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering held every year in Elko, Nevada. Including “roundups” dedicated to cowboy poetry, as well as Cowboy Poetry week which is celebrated each April throughout the United States and Canada.

The Western Slope Cowboy Poetry and Music Gathering is being made possible in part thanks to the support of the Museums of Western Colorado.

Meet Our Performers

The Western Slope Cowboy Gathering was initiated by Terry Nash, Peggy Malone, Nona Kelley Carver, and the Museums of Western Colorado for the celebration and sharing of modern and classic Cowboy Poetry and Music.  Currently in its 2nd year, the gathering hosts a wide range of top local and national Cowboy Poets and Western Singers, and presents two days and nights of good family fun, featuring great cowboy entertainment at the Museum of the West and the Whitman Educational center.

We take pride on gathering some of the BEST local and national cowboy poets and musicians for your listening pleasure right here in Downtown Grand Junction, Colorado.
