How Do Members Help the Gathering During COVID-19?

Members are helping sustain the Gathering through these difficult times, and helping us see a way forward that brings cowboy poetry to a wider audience through online video. Regular, monthly contributions and new memberships tell us that you appreciate the Gathering, and want it to continue, grow, and thrive. Your support demonstrates that we are a publicly-supported organization worthy of our 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.

Why Does the LSCPG Have Members in Normal Years?

The Lone Star Cowboy Poetry Gathering is a huge project. Imagine planning one performance, with one performer, backup musicians, and an audience. You would need to book a performance space; contract with the performers; arrange for the right sound equipment; advertise the show; sell tickets, making sure not to overfill the venue; sell sponsorships; and so on. Now multiply that work for 6 ticketed shows and 38 free performances, and you have some idea of what the LSCPG looks like behind the scenes. It's really 44 shows and 1 keynote address packed into 2 short days.

"Why do it, then?" you might ask. "Why tackle something on this scale?" Because the benefits don't just add up — they multiply! It's so exciting to have so many great performers in one small town, working together, learning from each other.

Members support the Gathering all year round, which enables us to make the details happen. And members get to purchase tickets before anyone else, along with a bunch of other stuff!
