After the show, there will be a performance by the Jody Cooper band. This year’s show will feature cowboy poets Andy Nelson and Brent Hill and this year’s emcee will be well known author Kathy Moss.
Hill is a cowboy singer who writes his own music and is a “cool ranch cowboy” according to coordinator Billie Flick. Nelson is a rancher, horseshoer and cowboy who writes and performs his own poetry.
Flick explained that Hill was a very good friend of her late husband Leon Flick and Flick ran into Hill and Nelson after they had both entertained at the Oregon Cattleman’s Association Convention and she had asked them if they would be interested in performing at the Cowboy Poetry show in Paisley, which they agreed and also told Flick that they would be in Reno at the end of January and would love to stop and do a show in Lakeview if Flick could get one put together, which they did.
Kathy Moss a.k.a. A.K. Moss will be the emcee of the show. Moss is the winner of the 2017 ‘Keeper of the West, people’s choice award, Kamloops Canada, Member of the Western Music Association and Women Writing the West according to her bio.
