Praise for Volume Ten:

 

 

"...a best-of-the-best double CD collection that truly is one for the books...Obviously this one is a must-have!"

 

                                                                  Rick Huff's Best of the West Reviews

 

 

Praise for previous volumes of The BAR-D Roundup:
 

 "...The annual anthology takes listeners on an oral excursion to places throughout the West, introducing them to colorful cowboy characters, explaining their connection to the land, and telling their tales of tough times and the rewards they receive from living the Western lifestyle..."

 

                                                     Jennifer Denison, Senior Editor, Western Horseman

 

 

 

 

“...a slam dunk of good wordsmithing.”

                                      David Roche, Executive Director, Western Folklife Center


“…It's another great collection [Volume Nine] and it's amazing to think of the body of work contained in the whole series of CDs.”

                                                                           Texas songster Andy Hedges

 

 

 


Pictured: James F. Walker Nelson (1920-1993) in the late 1970s, farrier and father of poet Andy Nelson and Jim Nelson, co-hosts of Clear Out West (C.O.W.) Radio. Photo courtesy of the Nelson family.

 

 


 


 

 

 


 

Praise for previous volumes:

 
"The Center for Western and Cowboy Poetry's annual anthologies are creating a valuable, high quality and thoroughly enjoyable resource for everyone..."


                                      Steve Green, Archivist, Western Folklife Center
 

"....a great collection of poetry. The annual selections just get better and better."

                     Hal Cannon, Western Folklife Center Founding Director
                       and co-founder of the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering


"...a memorable journey across the West...the selected poems speak to the toil and reward, solitude and friendships, sorrow and playfulness found in lives lived in the American West."

Jeri Dobrowski, Cowboy Jam Session

"...without peer...intelligently produced... I equate them to one of those Ken Burns specials, like his Civil War, Jazz, or Baseball....the best of the best.

                                                
Rick Huff, Rick Huff's Best of the West Reviews
 

"...a fine collection of classic and contemporary poetry offerings that'll please any fan of the genre."
                                                  
Western Horseman 


"For those of us who love cowboy poetry, this is perhaps the best anthology we've yet heard."  
                                                                 Cowboy Magazine   

 

 

The BAR-D Roundup: Volume Ten (2016) is a double CD compilation of vintage and contemporary recordings of some of the best cowboy poetry.

Cowboy poetry records the heartbeat of the working West, a tradition—stories of cowboys, ranchers, and Western writers—that spans three centuries. Its enduring popularity is celebrated at today’s cowboy poetry gatherings and at CowboyPoetry.com, a program of the non-profit Center for Western and Cowboy Poetry.

This tenth and final edition of The BAR-D Roundup collects the most popular classic and contemporary poetry tracks from the past volumes, including those from early volumes that are long out of print. You’ll find the authentic voices of National Endowment for the Arts Heritage Fellows (Buck Ramsey, Wallace McRae, Joel Nelson); of past Texas State Poet Laureate Red Steagall; of classic poets in their own voices (Gail I. Gardner, Robert Service, Charles Badger Clark, Jr.); and of many other men and women, respected poets and reciters who are cowboys, ranchers, and Western writers.

The Center’s Cowboy Poetry Week celebration—recognized by unanimous U.S. Senate resolution—is held each April during National Poetry Month. Each year, The BAR-D Roundup CD and the celebration’s poster (by respected cowboy and artist Gary Morton in 2016) are offered to libraries in the Center’s Rural Library Program. The outreach program is a part of the Center’s commitment to serve rural communities and to preserve and promote our Western heritage.

The CD is dedicated to all those who proudly carry on the ranching tradition.
