The Phippen Museum offers an evening of cowboy song, stories and fun with poet and singer Gail Steiger, and poet and author Amy Hale Auker at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 20, at the museum.
Another in a series of entertaining Third Thursday Dinner Programs, this popular Western review will be catered by Big Daddy E’s Barbeque. Museum members admitted for $25 and guests for $30.
Steiger is a multi-talented poet, musician and working cowboy who comes from both a ranching and songwriting background. His grandfather, Gail Gardner, was a local personality who wrote several well-known cowboy songs, including “Tying Knots in the Devil’s Tail” (or “Sierry Pete’s”) and “The Dude Wrangler.”
Auker is an award-winning author who writes and thrives on a local ranch where she continues to have a love affair with rock, mountains, piñon forests, the weather and Steiger, her songwriter, ranch foreman husband.
