FOLK SONGS OF THE COWBOY AND PIONEER

1-3 p.m.

The cowboy and the pioneer spent a lot of slow moving time on the range and on the many trails leading westward.   To pass the time, many folk songs and cowboy ballads were made up and sung along the way.  Bob Sawyer will be singing many of these folk songs and sharing their stories at Log Cabin Village.   Bring the family and let’s sing traditional American music!  Cost is regular Village admission.
