August 8, 2013
The Pinedale Fine Arts Council (PFAC) is proud to present Wyoming’s own Jalan Crossland performing with his full band on Friday, August 16 at 6 p.m. in the American Legion Park in Pinedale. The Austin, Texas alt-country group, Horse Opera will open the event, which is free to the public. So grab your camp chair and cooler and join PFAC for an evening of great music!
Jalan Crossland, of Ten Sleep, Wyoming is one of the most respected guitarists in the country and his name remains at the top of the list when mentioning great alt-country and Americana acts of the past decade. Crossland's songs are vivid, first-hand accounts of life in the small towns and backcountry of 21st century America. Like the people they portray, the songs are tough and honest. They also reflect the tremendous heart and soul of their colorful characters. Even where the warp and weave is of hardship or heartbreak, the songs are threaded with strings of optimism and humor. Additionally, Crossland puts on a live show that is filled with energy and humor.
Opening the event will be Austin, Texas alt-country four-piece Horse Opera who perform REAL country music with raw, emotion-driven songs covering the gamut from Saturday nite in the honky-tonk, to Sunday morn’ at the altar. Songs for the workin’ man, the drifter, the drinker, the sinner, the saved, the lonely, the lover, the fool and the wise man. Calling on the influence of ‘50’s and ‘60’s country music, bluegrass, and hillbilly, and a touch of the ‘70’s Outlaw edge, Horse Opera has crafted a sound all their own, planted firmly in the traditions of classic country music.
The August 16 performance will conclude PFAC’s Summer Series, which is presented by the Pinedale Fine Arts Council with support from the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, the Town of Pinedale, the Sublette County Recreation Board and the Pinedale Travel and Tourism Commission.
