The Palouse Country Cowboy Poetry Association is doing their spring performance at the Dahmen Barn and will include Western music. The group has been performing twice a year since the Barn opened. We are pleased to have them back!
In 1991 Baxter Black, probably today’s best known cowboy poet, told a group of Palouse country enthusiasts gathered in Asotin, Washington, that cowboy poetry was the fastest growing western cultural activity and that they should get involved. The group members ruminated on that statement, some attended gatherings (poetry and music performing sessions) and some began writing cowboy poetry. Finally, in 1995, following a cowboy poetry workshop led by local cowboy poet, the group decided to develop a more formal organization and the Palouse Country Cowboy Poetry Association was formed with seven members. Today there are about 40 members, both cowboy poets and musicians, coming from all over the Palouse.
