The Stony Plain Cowboy Festival has added more great artists to the lineup!
We still have some returning fan favorites (TBA so stay tuned) but we are excited to announce we are adding
“Roger West, an entertainer who exemplifies passion with a heart the size of Texas, quickly rose to be one of the Ontario’s top earning club acts, winning fans and buyers alike with his flamboyant energetic style. This unique artist, seasoned well beyond his years, paid his dues on the Eastern Canadian music scene, pounding pavement, first as a prolific side man to later front his own group The Bounty Hunters. His gutsy move to Alberta in 2007 have paid huge dividends, as he has amazingly become one of the busiest touring acts in Western Canada in less than 2 years.”
“Steve Newsome is a Canadian country singer/songwriter, born and raised in southern Alberta. He now hangs his hat just west of Stony Plain. Steve’s proud farm, ranching and trail riding past has given him plenty of inspiration for his song writing. From guitar drowning pack horses, grizzly bears and back country rodeos to making big wheels turn and engines roar, Steve has no shortage of experience when it comes to the cowboy life.”
“Shane has been a strong presence in the singer songwriter scene in Calgary and his writing has matured and found its own unique voice as he has developed his craft. When asked about song writing he will say “I think song writers look at life a little differently, because a lot of the time you have to bring the listener full circle, introduce them to something you care about, explain it, and then resolve it… even if the resolution is knowing that sometimes there is no real answer or ending.””
