BROWN BAG PROGRAM:
BAYOU SECO PERFORMS COWBOY MUSIC
Thursday, March 21, 12:00 pm -1:00 pm
Museum Courtyard 312 W. Broadway
Renowned local music duo Bayou Seco will present a boot-stompin' program of cowboy songs and western dance tunes learned from cowboy friends across the state.
Bayou Seco, a.k.a. Ken Keppeler and Jeanie McLerie, have been entertaining New Mexico and many parts of the world since 1980. Bayou Seco's roots are in the southwest, but their branches reach around the globe. In addition to performing professionally they have a long history in the research and preservation of American roots music.
This program ties into the Silver City Museum's exploration of Ranching in Grant County, the title of our nearly year-long exhibit on display in the Dodge Gallery.

FAMILY FUN PROGRAM:
COWPOKES AND CATCHY POEMS
