Jerry Bell has been working cow camps & guiding for over 30 years and he performs throughout the west including Wyoming, Idaho, Colorado, Nevada, Montana & California. Jerry is a member of the Wind River Poets, Idaho Poets & Poets of Utah Associations. Ron Scofield is well known for his dedication and commitment to keeping alive the old American West. He expresses all facets of the old west through his wagon and carriage building, art work, architecture, and of course his music.
Jim King has entertained throughout the United States and Canada. His performances are exemplified by his statement "Cowboy Poetry, first of all, is the real life of a Cowboy and a Rancher. There is nothing Hollywood or Drugstore Cowboy about it.” For 20 years, in over two thousand performances from Leningrad University in Russia to C-Span, McAvoy Layne has preserved the wit and wisdom of "The Wild Humorist of the Pacific Slope" -- Mark Twain.
