Palouse Cowboy Poets and Musicians
Bringing cowboy poetry and Western music. One of the featured performers will be young fiddle playing phenomenon, Elliott Marks, from Clarkston, Washington. He started violin lessons at age 5 and now, at age 12, can fiddle with the best of them. Other performers include poets: J.B. Barber, Darleane Norskog, Marlene Ryan, Dave Wahl and silver buckle winner Dick Warwick. Musicians, in addition to young Marks, include “Awesome” Aasen, Lee Hadwiger and Maxine Larson. The Palouse group was founded in 1995 a few years after acclaimed cowboy poet Baxter Black visited the area.
