|Sharon Glenn and George Thomsen|
Northwest Heritage Resources is pleased to present a performance of cowboy poetry, stories and songs in Shoreline on Friday, June 3, 2016. The event is in partnership with the Briarcrest Neighborhood Association of Shoreline, and is scheduled for 7:00pm at the Shorecrest High School library, 2nd floor, 15343 25th Ave NE, Shoreline 98155.
The performance will feature award winning cowboy poet, Sharon “Silver” Glenn of Yakima, her cowboy musician husband, George Thomsen, and rancher, farmer and cowboy poet Glenn Bair.
Sharon was born in the Ellensburg area, daughter of a cowboy father and a homesteader’s daughter, and grew up surrounded by horses and livestock. She and her husband George have lived the cowboy life for many years, working for local cattle and sheep outfits. George is a lifetime buckaroo and horse trainer. Together they perform as the musical duo, Northfork, singing traditional cowboy songs of the rural west, as well as songs of George’s own composition and Sharon’s poetry.
Glenn Bair grew up cattle ranching and farming in Ephrata, and like Sharon and George, his poetry and songs are true stories from the cowboy and ranching life he has lived. All three have performed at the well known Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada, the Charley Russell Cowboy Gathering in Lewiston, Idaho, Cowboy Poets of Idaho in Emmett, the Columbia River Cowboy Gathering in Kennewick, Spirit of the West in Ellensburg, the Northwest Folklife Festival, and events throughout the Northwest.
A suggested donation of $5 per person over 18 can be made at the door. Space is limited, so reservations are recommended. For reservations or more information email or call 206-306-1181.
The June 3rd event is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, 4Culture, and Northwest Heritage Resources.
