Today is the day that Mark and I are doing a book signing at the Tattered Cover at Highlands Ranch, at 7:30. We will be performing selected songs and signing our new book on Jack Thorp and the cowboy songs he collected in the 1880's and 1890's. We have done a good bit of research and have found info on Thorp that was unexpected. We are also offering arrangements to the songs that are getting right close to what he heard out on the prairie.
More info and directions can be found at the Tattered Cover web site:
http://www.tatteredcover.com/NASApp/store/IndexJsp;jsessionid=a5AJolj-7O1b?s=storeevents&eventId=307332
The track list and mp3 files as well as a description of the book are now available at CD baby:
http://cdbaby.com/cd/markrex2
The book is available through the Museum of New Mexico Press:
https://secure.nmsites.com/museumofnewmexico.org/order.cgi#book395
Also Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other sites on the web. If you do a websearch on "Jack Thorp's Songs of the Cowboys" you'll see that it's getting around. 'Course you can get them from me directly.
If you are in the Denver area, I hope you'll come by. It's sort of rare that we get to perform here.

For what it's worth, the little gig we did at the Tattered cover is going to be aired on KGNU Friday, the 18th from 12:00 to 1:00. 88.5 FM - Boulder, 1390 AM - Denver.
There was a reporter that said she was from NPR and she recorded our program, interviewed some of the audience and then interviewed us. I don't figure all of you will be pulling in a signal out where you are but it can be gotten online at:

The Center for Western and Cowboy Poetry is a fine outfit that celebrates early writers of cowboy poetry as well as comtemporary writers. I discovered them by accident while looking for info on Badger Clark. Once I got in touch with them, they took an interest in our Thorp book as they were going to put together a page on Jack Thorp. Well they've done it, not only making for a great review and study of our book but the most comprehensive study there is about Jack Thorp. If you have any interest in Thorp, you need to visit this site and also check out the work they've done on other cowboy poets.

What's the story behind the modal tune of "Bucking Bronco"?

Q was kind to bring this back to light. Wow, almost 10 years and most of the links still work. Here is one for the Museum of New Mexico Press. You can still get this Book/CD through CDbaby as well.
