For the fifth consecutive year, Booth Western Art Museum proudly announces the schedule for the Summer Entertainment Series. The events will be held on the third Thursdays of June, July and August in the Booth Ballroom and will include a buffet-style dinner, cash bar, and excellent entertainment.
The first in the series will be on Thursday, June 19 at 7:00 pm where members and guests are invited to enjoy The Humor of Mark Twain. Booth Museum Historian Jim Dunham will present humorous material the author used during his many speaking engagements around the world, giving the audience an idea of what it might have been like to attend one of Twain’s sold out lectures. Later in the evening, Dunham will step out of character and discuss some of Twain’s real-life Western adventures and the books he created from these experiences.
On Thursday, July 17 at 7:00 pm, spend the evening listening to the sounds of the West with the Tumbleweed Cowboy Band. This three-piece band, formed by the late Doc Stovall, stays true to Western heritage through song and performance. Special guest and Cowboy Poet Tom Kerlin will join the band with several spoken word pieces, highlighting the art of cowboy poetry.
The final performance of the Summer Entertainment Series will be on Thursday, August 21 at 7:00 pm. Join country-western singer Scott Thompson as he plays a variety of cowboy songs you know…and a few you don’t. The show will begin with a set of traditional cowboy songs and transition into more mainstream country. To round-out the show, Thompson will conclude with a set of cowboy songs from rock and roll and the blues.
Again, each show will include a delicious dinner prepared by the Booth Café and a cash bar. Tickets for the Summer Entertainment Series are on sale now and can be purchased by visiting the Museum or by calling 770-387-1300. Tickets are $25 for Booth Museum Members and $30 for not-yet-members.
