We are very pleased to introduce Billy Dean to our Columbia River Cowboy Gathering! Billy is our Saturday Night Concert Headliner!
Just three of his hits that you may remember are: Billy the Kid, Only Here for a Little While and If There Hadn’t Been You. Please click on 2017 Entertainers in the menu to see his complete Bio.
Billy recorded and produced the 2004 album “Let Them Be Little” on his own. Dean knew this album would either reintroduce him to the country format or be his swan song. But he wanted to show the world “that I still had some good music left in me”.
Lacy J Dalton
We are pleased to have Lacy J Dalton as our Friday night headliner back to entertain for you! She was our headliner back in 2006 for our 3rd Cowboy Gathering & Music Festival!
Her signature song is “16th Avenue”. A couple of other big hits are Black Coffee and Hard Times …but she has more! Check them out on YouTube! Click on 2017 Entertainers in the menu to see a complete Bio.
We are very pleased to welcome Gary Allegretto -“Harmonicowboy”- as our Friday Night Sub-Liner! You are going to love him! Gary is a cowboy singer/songwriter/musician whose rare abilities on the harmonica are virtually one-of-a-kind. His jaw-dropping performances have captivated audiences at concerts and festivals around the globe!
He will be putting on a “Playshop” (a workshop but it’s too much fun to call “work” so he calls it “play”) Saturday at noon which will go for 90 minutes. You can sign up and learn how to plan the Harmonica (the 1st song in 30 seconds!) – and you get to keep the Harmonica!
