Second Annual Gathering

November 16 - 17, 2020

In 2019, the Winnsboro Cowboy Poetry Gathering joined the list of October events in Winnsboro. This inaugural gathering included a first class roster of cowboy poets and musicians from three different states including Laverne “Straw” Berry, Teresa Burleson, Don Cadden, Bob Campbell, Allan and ”Rodeo Kate” Chapman, Pipp Gillette, Kristyn Harris, Chris Isaacs, Linda Kirkpatrick, Gary Robertson, Haley Sandoz, Jay Snider, Doug Tolleson plus locals Joe Dan Boyd, “Doc” Davis and Conrad Wolfman. Kick off for the event was a Friday evening concert by Michael Martin Murphey on The Bowery Stage which sold out far in advance. Many of these poets will be returning for the 2020 Gathering, and Michael will be back for two concerts instead of one this year!”
