6th Annual Cowboy Songs and cake event tomorrow

(Alta, Wyo.) - The Teton County Library Alta Branch invites the community to join in the 6th Annual Cowboy Songs & Cake concert, featuring the pickin’ buckaroos from Wyoming, Michael Hurwitz, Jerry Linn and Tommy Broderick. Back by popular demand, the buckaroos, aka The Aimless Drifters band, will begin playing “prairie blues,” a unique mix of blues and country music, at 2:30 p.m., Friday, March 11. Doors open at 2 p.m. , and seating is limited so come early to get a seat. “Hurwitz, the band’s leader, says he never knows what song he’ll play next, which keeps the audience on their toes,” said Gretchen Notzold, Alta Branch Library Manager. “This free concert by such gifted musicians is not to be missed.” American Cowboy Magazine writes: “Michael Hurwitz grew up with a guitar in one hand and reins in the other. Along the road he’s howled with coyotes and picked with the greats, and has become the best of both - wild and untamed.” Following the music, attendees are invited to enjoy cake, coffee, hot chocolate and tea while also feasting on views of the Tetons from the library’s picturesque windows. “The cake itself is an event which draws an audience. Each year folks are guessing whether the cake will be almond poppy seed, carrot cake or chocolate. We call it ‘Virginia’s Cake’ since it’s made by our talented baker and library assistant, Virginia Grosse,” Notzold says. The program is free and open to the community with support from donations, large and small, to the Teton County Library Foundation.
