For the sixth consecutive year, Booth Western Art Museum hosted the Summer Entertainment Series. Each event included a delicious dinner prepared by the Booth Café and live entertainment.
The 2015 Summer Entertainment Series kicked-off with a performance by Granville Automatic! Named after a 19th–century typewriter, Granville Automatic writes and performs songs devoted to telling stories from the past. Their latest album, An Army Without Music: Civil War Stories from Hallowed Ground, tells the haunting stories of sorrow and perseverance, 150 years following the American Civil War.

Pickxen, an Atlanta-based, three-piece southern folk band entertained the crowd during the July event. They lead guests on a musical journey through the year with original songs and select covers. For additional information on Pickxen, click here.
The final performance of the Summer Entertainment Series was Trails Plowed Under with Jim Dunham and Jim Dorsett. Dunham took on the persona of famed Western artist Charlie Russell, completing a copy of one of Russell’s paintings, while also reciting favorite passages from Russell’s book, Trails Plowed Under. As he painted, Dorsett performed Western songs related to the work of Russell.
