The Arizona Cowboy Poets Gathering, celebrating the true working cowboy, is Aug. 11-13 this year at the Yavapai College Performing Arts Center.

The gathering has been a featured event in Prescott, Arizona, going on 29 years. The primary purpose of this event is to perpetuate and preserve the culture, traditions and history of cowboy poetry and music as it was enjoyed for decades past and is being presented in the contemporary form of its presentation. 

This gathering of more than 60 poets and singers each year has kept its focus on the working cowboy and livestock-oriented element of our social structure and folk history. Up first, on Thursday, Aug. 11, is Jim Jones. The featured performer on Friday is Mary Kaye.
