Join the Palm Springs Cultural Center in the Theatre 3 Playhouse on Wednesday, September 7 from 5–7:30 pm for Cowboy Songs with John Stanley King and the Cowboy Songs Band, an evening of cowboy tunes, bluegrass, newgrass, and a hint of gypsy jazz! Cowboy songs existed before country music and became popular with a wider public in the 30s and 40s because of their use in western movies. Marty Robbins, Sons of the Pioneers and others continued to record them but they gradually faded into obscurity. This project revives the old tunes and has found a renewed public interest in them.
