Steering Committee

The SOUTH TEXAS COWBOY GATHERING & Western Music Festival would not be possible without the vision, dedication and hard work of its Steering Committee Members who commit their time and talents to create this event. These folks share a passion for preserving the Western way of life and the life of the modern day rancher. Thank you for joining together to plan and produce our 2017 Gathering / Festival. Our hats are off to you!

One of the functions of the Steering Committee is to decide who will be invited to perform at future Gatherings. Normally, we try to include 2 or 3 new entertainers each year. This is usually done in September. If you are interested in performing, please mail a bio and CD (or copy of your work) to the committee at the address listed below:

South Texas Cowboy Gathering & Western Music Festival
P. O. Box 851
Seguin, TX 78156

We usually have more applicants than we have space or money to invite. There are open mic sessions on Friday and Saturday during the Gathering where performers may sign up to perform a song, poem or story that ties to the Western way of life.
