Tom Russell was raised on the cowboy music of the American West. Since then, he has established himself as a highly acclaimed singer songwriter, painter, and author – publishing five books, recording 35 albums and having songs recorded by Johnny Cash, Nanci Griffith, K.D. Lang, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, and a hundred others. As a painter, Russell uses powerful and diverse influences of African, Mexican, and Native American art coupled with the bold color and expressionism similar to Fritz Scholder to be proclaimed as “An American Colorist” by ArtBeat Gallery. Several of his works will be displayed in the Booth Ballroom during the event.

In 2015 Russell released a 52 track “folk opera” on the West, The Rose of Roscrae, which was hailed as “An American Masterpiece” by Mike Hurshman of KAFM Radio, Colorado. Of this album, Russell states it is “The first Frontier Musical written in the West, by a Westerner, using hard core Western lingo, and original and traditional songs…20 years in the making – concept to completion.”

Doors to the Booth Ballroom open at 6:00 pm for a delicious gourmet dinner prepared by the Booth Café with a cash bar. The dinner menu will feature Caesar salad, Parmesan crusted chicken, steamed broccoli and carrots, garlic mashed potatoes, French bread, peach crisp, and tea or water.
