Thursday March 16th Noon CDT on EQUESTRIAN LEGACY RADIO with host Gary Holt and Jennifer Denison
Our special guest on the CAMPFIRE CAFE' are David Wilkie and Denise Withnell of the Award Winning group, Cowboy Celtic.
David, the founder of Cowboy Celtic, has been tracking down the roots of cowboy music all the way to the Celtic isles for more than a decade. As Wilkie has discovered, the cattle industry has been going on in Scotland and Ireland for hundreds of years, and cattlemen from Ireland and Scotland brought their culture and musical traditions with them when they moved to North America. The music of Cowboy Celtic demonstrates that those traditions live on in the cowboy songs of today.
Cowboy Celtic, centered in Turner Valley, Alberta, includes David on mandolin and vocals, Denise on guitar and vocals, Keri Lynn Zwicker on harp and vocals, and Joseph Hertz on fiddle. Their second CD, “Cowboy Ceilidh,” won the National Cowboy Hall of Fame Wrangler Award for Outstanding Traditional Western Music Album in 1999. They were the first Canadians to ever win this award.
“This is more than music. It’s theatre and imagery and history and storytelling and more, all wrapped up in sagebrush and tartan.”
We're pleased to welcome Denise Withnell and David Wilkie to the CAMPFIRE CAFE'
