Wild Rose and Prairie Sage: The Music and Wisdom Of The West.

Singer/Songwriter Nancy Elliott and Cowboy Poet Joe Herrington

In the Western music community NANCY ELLIOTT is known for her unique style of cowboy music. Audiences are enraptured by an alluring vibrato voice some declare as pure folk, while others deem perfect for gospel, swing or blues.  Her voice tugs at your heart, drawing you in with its sweet Celtic  undertones .  If melody and voice don’t capture your attention, her provoking lyrics will. Songs like “Wild Rose” and the Western Music Association nominated 2011 Song of The Year, “Where The Wind Blows A Different Song,” establish Nancy as a true master of Western music.  This poet, singer, musician and author hits the stage in a big way, bringing her love of land and our Western heritage to every performance. Led by true grit and cowboy know-how this Ohio-born country girl is weaving a legendary trail of music into the tapestry of the West.

JOE HERRINGTON, the “Campfire Storyteller,” is a novelist, cowboy poet and western storyteller. Recognizing his talent, the Western Music Association nominated him for 2013 Male Poet of The Year. Homespun and authentic, Joe’s poems and stories follow the traditions of great storytellers, his characters and stories not only entertain, they prod the soul with a truer understanding of the deep values and solid character of the American Cowboy.

SCVTV Presents The OutWest Concert Series: An Evening With Juni Fisher
Recognized by the Western Music Association with awards for Female Performer of The Year, Entertainer of The Year, Songwriter of The Year, and Western Album of The Year – multiple times-JUNI FISHER brings you an evening you won’t forget! Taking the OutWest stage for a fourth time, Juni’s appearances are not to be missed.  Born in the San Joaquin Valley of California, she spent her early years training horses as well as working on cow-calf operations. Now touring the country full time, she delights audiences with her original songs, storytelling and guitar playing. Her newest album, “Listen…to The Horse” nominated by the WMA for 2013 Western Album of The Year and the title track for Song of The Year, her original songs are dedicated to the magic of the horse and the special relationship between horse and rider.  Here’s what one reviewer wrote:
“I've been looking forward to the release of Juni Fisher's new CD, "Listen...To The Horse" and am not disappointed. Like all her CDs there are stories here, all you have to do is...Listen. And, like me, you'll hit the replay button again and again. I'm not a horsewoman but Juni is and she presents her passion for horses in such a warm and loving way that I feel I have become a horsewoman. Juni's songs aren't songs, they are stories put to music, word pictures uploaded to your memory bank, and melodies that live in your heart.   If you are a horsewoman, this CD is for you. If you are a horseman, this CD is for you. If you are a Juni Fisher fan, this CD is for you. And - if you are none of these...just “Listen” and you will be!”  --Bobbi Jean Bell,    OutWest’s Purveyor of Music and Co-Host of the WMA 2013 Nominated Radio Program of The Year, “Around The Barn”

Colorado Cowboy Barry Ward and Canadian Cowgirl Eli Barsi

BARRY WARD
, Western Music Association 2013 Male Performer of The Year, and nominated for multiple awards including Entertainer of The Year, and Songwriter of The Year finds his songwriting inspirations come from his experience growing up in the heart of rural America. Sharing from his heart, his singing and songwriting  are a tribute to Western traditions and lifestyles. From a Kansas farm boy with cow manure on his boots to an entertainer performing in New York City’s famed Carnegie Hall, Barry brings the West to the world.
“I give an A+ in all phases of songwriting, for lyrics, instrumentation, and vocal excellence…”
            ----Jack Hannah, Sons of the San Joaquin
“Barry is right at home behind a saddle horn, the steering wheel of a combine, or a microphone”
     ----Orin Friesen of The Rockin’ Banjo Ranch

ELI BARSI, driven by her passion for music, strives for excellence both on and off the stage.  For over 25 years, she’s entertained on both sides of the border. Early in her career she performed mainly in Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia then moved to Nashville, Tennessee to hone her songwriting skills. After years performing on both sides of the border, she began her recording career releasing albums and radio singles. Invited to perform with the legendary Sons of the Pioneers in 2002, she called Branson, Missouri home for 8 years. Returning to Saskatchewan, Eli continues to record and perform. “Portrait of a Cowgirl,” her newest album, is burning up the Western charts.  A talented artist embracing Western Roots, Gospel, New Country, Bluegrass, Traditional Country & Folk music, Eli’s show is always uplifting, mixing standards with thought provoking originals.

Thursday, October 17, 2013
Repertory East Playhouse


OutWest has repeatedly introduced top musical talent to the Santa Clarita Valley. Expect nothing less from this month's performer, {>}KERRY GROMBACHER.  You are guaranteed an engaging evening of original and traditional music - folk with western flair, a dash of Cajun spice, and a whole lotta fun! Journey with him through his vision of the West and its tapestry of stories  - many hidden from popular view. You'll be enthralled and informed, as well as entertained! Don't take our word for it - here's what others are saying about New Orleans based singer/songwriter Kerry Grombacher:

“Kerry Grombacher is the best kind of songwriter, with lyrics that take us on journeys to places we’ve never visited before, and melodies so pure and true that they seem to rise up from the plains..."          ---Nalini Jones - Newport Folk Festival

“For nearly two hours, Grombacher stood alone at center stage with a microphone and his guitar, a bottle of water at his feet. What poured from him were some of the most insightful and skillfully-crafted songs you will ever hear.”    ----Chuck Mittan – The Superior Express, Superior NE

Kerry Grombacher “…is one of the West’s new breed, who builds on, embellishes, expands, and updates traditional Western themes.”

9/25/2013 -"Ride Cowboy Ride" comes in at #19 on the New Music Country Chart! Congratulations, Terry!


Exciting and talented performer, {>}TERRY BROWN, kicks off the fall season of the SCVTV Presents The OutWest Concert Series with a night of great music. Do you enjoy Country Music? Western Music? Great, toe-tapping, inspiring music? You'll enjoy Terry Brown!

After spending 36 weeks in the top 30 on the Western Music Charts, Terry Brown's latest CD, "It's A Cowboy Thang" garnered a nomination by the Western Music Association for 2013  Western Album Of The Year AND Album of the Year from the Academy Of Western Artists. Terry's song "Silver Spur" won the Song Of The Year honors from the AWA in 2000 and Terry was nominated for Rising Star, Male Vocalist and Album Of The Year. "It's A Cowboy Thang" currently sits at #2 on the APD Global Americana Music charts.
Terry has toured for over 25 years and can shine in the singer/songwriter role with just his acoustic guitar or bring the house down with his band. He has performed with Chris LeDoux, Aaron Tippin, Toby Keith, and Brooks and Dunn as well as other major stars. With the release of Terry's new CD, "It's A Cowboy Thang", in March 2012, Terry feels like he has created a project that can help close the gap between traditional Western music and mainstream radio. Terry is known as "The Louis L'Amour of the Cowboy Singers". Hearing one of Terry's western songs is like reading a good western novel, only it doesn't take as long. Having performed his music at hundreds of rodeos and venues around the country, Terry knows a little something about the cowboy spirit and has a deep respect for our western roots.

With a catalogue of over 1200 songs and over 70 songs recorded by other acts, Terry's songs have appeared on millions of records worldwide. Terry has the kind of voice that is perfectly suited for the storyteller role. Its depth and emotional quality make you believe the stories he sings and makes you want to hear them again and again.

Tumbleweed Rob & The Southwest Junction

A Fork in the Road
Official CD Release Celebration
Saturday, March 30


You are invited to share a special evening with a gifted performer - "Tumbleweed Rob Wolfskill." What an honor it is to host this memorable event - the CD Release Celebration of his newest project!

Acclaimed entertainer, singer and songwriter, Rob Wolfskill embarks on a new journey, setting his sights on his own life span of influences, from his Southwestern American roots to the music of his formative years.  Rob now invites you to share his world of music, which includes many of the tunes the world has come to know him for plus a number of his own original compositions along with many of the songs that have meant something to him along the way. The leader of the successful Western Music Group, The Tumbling Tumbleweeds, Rob now lights a shuck and strikes out on a new trail as a solo artist with his new solo project called Tumbleweed Rob & The Southwest Junction!

Rob Wolfskill was born in Los Angeles, CA and is a descendent of the Chiricahua Red Paint Apache people.  He has very strong ties to his heritage and with his family being from New Mexico and Arizona he has a strong affection for the Southwest.  Rob grew up listening to everything from Sons of the Pioneers to Elton John and everything in between.  His own songwriting style is both very personal and also very heavily influenced by the Acoustic Roots Music he has been drawn to throughout his lifetime.

Rob says, “Acoustic Music has a way of really touching your soul.  I think the organics of acoustic instruments and the natural materials they are made of truly have a way of reaching us in a very primal way.  Don’t get me wrong, I can enjoy Electronica just as much as anyone but for me, Acoustic Music dwells most harmoniously with that deep affection we feel for music in our hearts.”

With Rob’s new solo project, Tumbleweed Rob & The Southwest Junction, he hopes to explore a more personal side of his artistic calling and give the folks who have come to know him thus far a closer look at who he is as an artist and as a person. The Southwest Junction consists of Jesse Olema on Fiddle, Dan Dungan on Bass and Craig Ferguson on Guitar.

This concert is made possible by our sponsors OutWest and the Western Music Association California Chapter.

An Evening with Cow Bop
Saturday, March 2

Click Here For Concert Link

Mix swingin’ grooves, thrilling riffs, sweet and hot vocals, acoustic western sensibilities and tons of fun and you have only begun to describe Cow Bop. Formed in 2003 by internationally-acclaimed jazz guitarist Bruce Forman, the cowboy jazz and western bebop band has toured extensively throughout the world, exciting audiences with their unique brand of music.

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. Comfortable in diverse settings, from Carnegie Hall to roadside taverns, the band always hits the stage with an electrifying and entertaining assortment of music and frolic. Along with Bruce Forman on guitar, the band features PintoPammy on vocals, whose talent and experiences range from big band swing, old-time country and musical theater, and mutli-instrumentalist David Wise, whose sax and trumpet playing takes you from the streets of New Orleans to the hottest blues and the coolest jazz. Put that on top of a rhythm section of Alex Frank, bass, and Jake Reed, drums, that are as swingin’ and rockin’ as a rodeo bronc but as sure-footed as a prized pack mule, and you get Cow Bop.

In 2004, Cow Bop won the Route 66 Challenge, traveling the length of the storied road having departed with a mere $100 and no scheduled gigs. Their debut CD, Swingin’ Out West, released in 2004, charted in four separate genres. Since then, Route 66, Too Hick for the Room, along with their newest CD: Cowlifornia Swing, have delighted critics around the world. The recordings feature songs and musicians from across the wide spectrum of the American musical palette.

Along with numerous appearances at esteemed nightclubs and concert venues, Cow Bop has also been featured at the Montreal & Monterey Jazz Festivals, the Sisters Folk Festival, as well as the Elko, Heber City, Monterey and Santa Clarita Cowboy Gatherings. For an extra treat, check out Bruce’s guitar work featured in Clint Eastwood’s Academy-Award winning film, Million Dollar Baby.
