Ian TysonTickets are now on sale, and we’re offering special limited pre-show seating! $50 general seating; $150 pre-seating. This 35th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering afternoon show (12:30 – 1:45 pm) will include songs both old and new, as well as humorous anecdotes and memories from Tyson’s storied life in the music business.
And there will be a second chance to see Ian on Saturday night, February 2! He will be a special guest at the 8 pm “Bridging the 49th” show in the Elko Convention Center Auditorium.

A border by cartography standards, the 49th parallel north distinguishes Canada from the United States. On maps, anyway. But try telling these musicians so as they sing themselves from side to side and back again.
Jamie Fox‘s fiddling heals a formerly-fading Métis fiddle tradition. Sid Marty‘s poetry, storytelling and songwriting travels like the Albertan wind. Corb Lund‘s musical diplomacy bridges the country and the city. And Colter Wall‘s songwriting blends the real and the magical. Making beauty out of coexistence, proving that lines are never quite what they seem, these four bards of the borderlands epitomize the artist as ambassador.
