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 will be an Open Mic on Friday night where anyone can sign up to perform a song, poem or story that ties to the Western way of life. This year we added an Open Pickin’ at the Friday night campfire. No sign-up for the Open Pickin’ is required AND there will be no mic. This will be a very informal “round robin” opportunity to sit at the campfire and share your favorite tunes or stories.
