Cowboy poet set to entertain

A cowboy entertainer so loved his time in Craig last year, that he’s asked to come back.

T.J. Casey, a self-described singing cowboy poet from Montana, will offer entertainment for crowds May 30 at the Grand Olde West Days celebration.

“It’s cool to think that somebody would travel that far to celebrate with us,” coordinator Carol Wilson said.

Grand Olde West Day committee members unanimously voted Casey’s singing the best from a number of applicants.

A towering figure often spotted with a cowboy hat and a handlebar mustache, Casey describes his singing as “western swing.”

Wilson described his style as “peppy, and the sounds of the pioneers.”

“It’s good music that people can listen to,” she said.

Casey is expected to perform from 3:30 to 5 p.m. May 30 in Alice Pleasant Park on Yampa Avenue. His performance will be simultaneous with other more contemporary music that will be performed in another section of the festival grounds.

“You can bring your family out,” Wilson said. “There will be a couple of different kinds of music. Mom and Dad can hang out and listen to Western music and then send the kids up the street.”
