Cowboy music and heritage

Do you know the difference between cowboy music and country music?

Ron Scoffield has always had a connection with the Old West. He repairs/restores horse drawn carriages and stagecoaches (in fact, he participated in the Bicentennial Wagon Train), and plays guitar while singing cowboy music. During the summer, his Red Mule Ranch hosts Cowboy Campfire Nights, which offers cowboy music, cowboy poetry, and a BBQ. Ron’s brother, Gary, was in town to join him on stage, so I sat down with both of them as they sang a couple of songs, and shared their stories.

South Sac Jooks‘ American root music start the new year off on a high note (pun intended.) We talk a little about the history of root music, and the Jooks play a couple of tunes with harmonica, guitar, washboard, and string bucket bass for instruments.
