Top Things to do at the Genoa Cowboy Festival

The annual Genoa Cowboy Festival blends star studded entertainment and Western cowboy heritage with our beautiful mountain and valley setting. Extending over three days, April 28-30, 2017 you get the chance to step back in time, unplug, and experience the old west in
the heart of Carson Valley!

Festivities begin Friday night, April 28, on the main stage with The Quebe Sisters (rhymes with maybe). When these triple-threat fiddle champions start playing and singing in multi-part close harmony, audiences are transfixed, then blown away. Watch their video of Cold Cold Heart.

Dave Stamey will continue the show with his award winning Western music. Cowboys and Indians Magazine has called him “the Charley Russell of Western Music.” Western Horseman Magazine has declared his “Vaquero Song” to be one of the greatest Western songs of all time. In 2010, 2011 and 2013 True West Magazine named him Best Living
Western Solo Musician.

Saturday April 29 brings Mike Beck to the main stage. He is an engaging acoustic solo artist who regularly performs in the United States and Europe. Western Horseman magazine recently picked "The 13 Best Cowboy Songs," and included two compositions by Mike, putting him alongside other writers such as Ian Tyson, Tom Russell, Lucinda Williams, and Gene Autry.

Following Mike, Tom Russell will take the stage. He has recorded 35 acclaimed records, and his songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Doug Sahm, Naci Griffith, K.D. Lang and many others.
