Summer Entertainment Series

Jim Dunham as Mark TwainTumbleweed Cowboy BandScott Thompson





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 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.

The menu for An Evening with Scott Thompson is set to include tossed salad, country fried steak with gravy, green beans, squash casserole, mashed potatoes with gravy, biscuits and cornbread, chocolate cake, and tea and water. A cash bar will also be available.

On Thursday, June 19 at 7:00 pm members and guests enjoyed The Humor of Mark Twain. Booth Museum Historian Jim Dunham presented 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 stepped out of character and discussed some of Twain’s real-life Western adventures and the books he created from these experiences.

On Thursday, July 17 at 7:00 pm, members and guests spent 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 joined the band with several spoken word pieces, highlighting the art of cowboy poetry.

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.
