Event Flyer

Date: Friday, November 27, 2015

Time: 12:00pm to 3:00pm

Location: Bates Nut Farm Stage

Description: Rick Robledo and The Working Cowboy Band are dedicated to the preservation of traditional country music. The Working Cowboy Band is steeped in the tradition of Honky Tonk and Texas Swing music that has filled music halls and bars from Abilene to San Antonio, Santa Fe to Albuquerque, and all the way to Bakersfield. This is where Merle Haggard lit the west coast on fire with classic songs like "Swingin' Doors", which exemplifies the Honky Tonk lifestyle that so many of these artists really lived.
