Renowned cowboy artist
Saturday, February 26, 7 p.m.
2015 Entertainer of the Year (Western Music Association) and 2015 Best Solo Western Musician (True West Magazine), Dave Stamey will perform at the Old Town Center for the Arts on Saturday, February 26 at 7 p.m.
Stamey has been a cowboy, a mule packer, a dude wrangler and is now one of the most popular Western entertainers working today. He finds he would rather delight audiences across the country than be trampled by angry horses. Drawing on his own experiences, Dave Stamey will perform songs and stories about living and working in the West.
Through the Western Music Association, he has also won Songwriter of the Year 5 times and Male Performer of the Year 6 times. Cowboys and Indians magazine calls Dave the “Charlie Russell of Western music”. Dave’s music is fresh, haunting and fun for the whole family. Some say its genre is “contemporary western music”. But certainly not “country” because this fun and moving music sparks joy in the hearts of audiences who live and/or love to experience “the West”.
