Description

Artichoke Cafe presents an evening with award-winning cowboy poet Tom Swearingen and Western Music Association Harmony Group of the Year winners Notable Exceptions. Tom Swearingen is an Oregon horseman who tells stories of the people and land of the American West through original cowboy poetry that is often inspired by his own experiences and observations from the saddle. Tom brings his stories to life with rhythm and rhyme and a style that makes him a popular performer not only at cowboy gatherings and horse camps, but also in singer-songwriter circles and wherever else you find folks who appreciate well-crafted verse. Notable Exceptions, the duo Judy Coder and Jennifer Epps, are known in the world of western music for their finely crafted vocal harmony. Their original tunes are lighthearted and conversational. For accompaniment, Judy's tasteful rhythm guitar is right on the button; Jennifer sweetens the sound with tidbits of harmonica, rhythm instruments, flutes and whistles. The result is fun, fresh, bold Americana.
