We are streaming a series of ticketed virtual cowboy poetry events beginning Nov. 2020, each showcasing three or four performers. Become a member and get free or $5 tickets, or pre-register now for discounted tickets. You will be notified as events are scheduled. The next in-person Gathering in Alpine, Texas will be held February 18-19, 2022, and each year thereafter on the 3rd Friday and Saturday of February.
Let's keep cowboy poets, storytellers, and musicians performing through the pandemic! Contribute to our Keeping the Tradition Alive Fund to empower us to produce additional top-quality online cowboy poetry events. An anonymous donor has pledged to double-match all donations up to $5000. So any dollar you give becomes $3!
Cowboy poetry, music, and storytelling; personal insights from the performers; and the opportunity to see them in their working environments, filmed by a professional crew who understand horses and cattle and the lives of people who work with them. See the FAQ page for more info.
Sul Ross State University enrolls about 2,000 students on its main campus in the Davis Mountains overlooking Alpine. The school has a working ranch as part of its animal science programs, and SRSU is the birthplace of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association.
We need your help to get the word out about our virtual events, and the importance of keeping the tradition alive. Can you spare a minute to send a friend a link to this page? Or mention @LSCPGathering on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram? Everything helps.
