"...I got the sensation that it was Christmastime and [the reciters] had come to spend the day, joshing, laughing, and telling stories in our living room ... I felt the joy and commitment of those who proudly carry on the ranching tradition."
 

                                                                    Jeri Dobrowski, Cowboy Jam Session
 

 

 


 

 

The BAR-D Roundup: Volume Eight, is a special
collection of vintage and modern Christmas cowboy poetry.
 


 

Praise for previous volumes:

"....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 Eight (2013) is a double CD compilation of vintage and contemporary recordings of some of the  best Christmas 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 daily in social media and at CowboyPoetry.com, a project of the non-profit Center for Western and Cowboy Poetry, Inc.

In this eighth annual edition of The BAR-D Roundup, a diverse chorus of voices presents contemporary and classic Christmas works. Opening the collection is a beautiful rendition of the shaped-note “Christmas Waltz” by National Endowment for the Arts Heritage Fellow Buck Ramsey (1938-1998), accompanied by his sisters and brother. Great cowboy troubadour Don Edwards recites Badger Clark’s “The Christmas Trail”; top cowboy poet Waddie Mitchell offers his original “Good Gift”; Red Steagall, past Texas Poet Laureate and the state's official cowboy poet delivers S. Omar Barker's "Three Wise Men"; and the voice of Jimmy Dean (1928-2010) is heard in a vintage recording of S. Omar Barker’s “A Cowboy’s Christmas Prayer.”

Forty-three additional poets and reciters present a spirited range of poems, many of them from the CowboyPoetry.com archive of Christmas at the BAR-D, started in 2000. Some of the poems are from Christmas Art Spur projects at CowboyPoetry.com, where poets are invited to be inspired by art and photography.

Every year's CD includes a radio public service announcement about the Center for Western and Cowboy Poetry. This year, it is delivered by ranch-raised rodeo broadcaster Totsie Slover.

The BAR-D Roundup cover images are usually vintage photos of poets or their forebears. This special Christmas collection veers slightly from that tradition with a photo of "Little Buddy" a steer from the Granley Ranch near Bainville, Montana. Inside is a photograph of the annual live Nativity at Dick Noble and Jim and Tina Noble Nelson's Flying U Ranch, in Cora, Wyoming. Find more about both images below.

Poems and permissions were generously donated by poets, musicians, families, organizations, and publishers.

Wyoming's Andy Nelson, poet, humorist, popular emcee and co-host of the award-winning Clear Out West (C. O. W.) Radio show is the CD's engineer and co-producer (with Margo Metegrano).
 

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 Shawn Cameron in 2013; by R.S. Riddick in 2012, Duward Campbell in 2011, Bill Owen in 2010, Joelle Smith in 2006, Tim Cox in 2007, William Matthews in 2008, and Bob Coronato in 2009—are offered to libraries in the Center's Rural Library Project. The outreach program is a part of the Center’s commitment to serve rural communities and to preserve and promote our Western heritage.

The BAR-D Roundup is a premium for our supporters and also available for purchase.


We need your support to continue and expand these programs. Read below about how you can be a part of it all.

How to submit a poem for consideration for future compilations

As co-producer Andy Nelson has quipped, we need a CD as big as a pizza to include all of the poems we'd like to include on the annual cowboy poetry compilation CD.

Selections are made by invitation, and from the CDs in our library. You are welcome to submit a CD or a track by mail for consideration. The receipt of such submissions will be acknowledged, but we regret that we don't have the resources to comment further on CDs or tracks. All CDs and tracks that are received are listened to and considered.

If you've submitted a CD previously and want to suggest a particular track for consideration, please email us with that information.

As always, we're looking for quality: well written poems, well recited, on a professional-quality recording. These CDs are a growing archive of the best contemporary and classic recitations. Their focus is the real working West.

Also, for this project, there are these considerations:

  • the track must be royalty-free for unrestricted radio play 

  • you must own complete rights to any poetry and music on the track

  • poetry must be your original poetry or be in the public domain or be used with written permission (supplied to us) by the author, who must also be willing to permit reproduction of the track, without compensation or royalties

  • any background music must be your original music, or be in the public domain; we cannot include tracks with licensed music 

The CD is offered to rural libraries, is distributed to radio stations for air play, is used as a premium for supporters of the Center for Western and Cowboy Poetry, and is sold.

Those donating tracks receive copies of the recording. There is no additional payment and no royalties are paid.

We're continually considering selections for forthcoming annual compilation CDs.

Send submissions to:  CowboyPoetry.com,  PO Box 1107, Lexington, VA 24450.
