Western Music Association's Female Poet of the Year, Susie Knight, is one of a stellar lineup for a one-night show in the El Raton Theater in (where else?) Raton, New Mexico. Poets and pickers from New Mexico and Colorado will also include WMA Male Performer of the Year, Jim Jones; WMA multiple-award nominee Terry Nash; 2014 Western Wordsmith Cowboy Poetry Jackpot winner Dennis Russell; award winning poets Floyd Beard and Dale Page; New Mexico balladeer, Doug Figgs; premier reciter Jerry Brooks; and local Western music favorites Gayanne Jeffers and Kara Mutz. This show is a great way to beat the deep winter blues, so plan to be with us from 7-9:30pm on Tuesday, February 24. Raton is located just inside the NM/CO line and has plenty of hotel rooms. Make it your stop on the way to Alpine like Terry Nash and Floyd Beard! More details on our Facebook page or our website, cimarroncowboygathering.comSave

Ask Jim Jones anything...
Q: Finally Jim here's a question, Have you ever thought about stepping up that recording and productions level and taking that major shot?
