Sharon Glenn and George Thomsen - Northfork
Performing Friday at Shorecrest

Hey Neighbors! The Briarcrest Neighborhood Association, in partnership with Northwest Heritage Resources, is pleased to invite you to a performance of Cowboy Poetry, Story and Songs this Friday, June 3, 2016 beginning at 7:00pm.

This family-friendly evening will take place in the Shorecrest High School library, 15343 25th Ave NE, Shoreline 98155. Join us for entertainment, snacks and neighborly socializing!

Award-winning cowboy-poet Sharon “Silver” Glenn and her cowboy-musician husband George Thomsen are the real deal, having grown up in Eastern Washington surrounded by horses and livestock.

Sharon and George have lived the cowboy life for many years, working for local cattle and sheep outfits and training horses. Together they perform as the musical duo Northfork, singing traditional cowboy songs of the rural west as well as their own original music.

Sharon and George will be joined by Glenn Bair, who grew up cattle ranching and farming in Ephrata. Glenn will share his poetry and songs based on true stories from the cowboy and ranching life he has lived.

All three of our guests are seasoned performers, having entertained at the well-known Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada, Cowboy Poets of Idaho, the Columbia River Cowboy Gathering in Kennewick, Spirit of the West in Ellensburg, and the Northwest Folklife Festival.

Admission is a suggested donation of $5.00 for guests 18 and over, collected at the event.

Space is limited, so reservations are recommended. For reservations or more information call 206-306-1181 or email. This event is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, 4Culture, and Northwest Heritage Resources.
