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.
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.
