New Shows Added to Cowboy Festival
The 26th Annual Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival, presented by California Resources Corporation, is announcing two new events benefiting the Friends of Hart Park that will occur during the weekend festivities.
On Friday, April 12, join the Friends of Hart Park for an evening of western swing music and dance, with returning Cowboy Festival performers Cow Bop. This group is known for mixing swingin’ grooves, thrilling riffs, sweet and hot vocals, western sensibilities and tons of fun for an electric performance. The band’s collective experience crosses the spectrum of American music – from the hottest jazz and the coolest swing to the most down-home honky-tonk. The Cowboy Dance, held at Hart Hall inside William S. Hart Park, begins at 7:00 p.m. with dance lessons starting at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $20, and beer and wine will be available for purchase.
On Saturday, April 13, don’t miss an evening of music with National Cash, a tribute to Johnny Cash. National Cash expertly escorts the audience on a trip down memory lane through Johnny Cash’s musical repertoire, intertwining local stories and historical anecdotes with music. Johnny’s bad-boy reputation will be brought to life, giving fans a taste of his time spent in the Ojai Valley. This is the perfect show for Johnny Cash fans new and old. National Cash’s Johnny Cash Tribute is truly a show not to be missed. The concert, held on the Mane Stage inside William S. Hart Park, begins at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $15, and beer and wine will be available for purchase.
