QUANAH – On Saturday, July 5, at 3:00 p.m., right after “Meet the Longhorns,” storyteller, songwriter, educator, and Cowboy Balladeer Larry Hannon will present his acclaimed story telling/singing performance, “Cowboy.”

Using both traditional and original material, putting old stories into lyrics and music, he creates an inspirational history lesson set to music that explores a way of life nearly extinct.

“In Larry’s songs and stories, you can smell the cow camp fire, hear the echo of hoof beats, and the distant cry of the coyote,” said park manager David D. Turner. “You don’t want to miss this.”

Back by popular demand, Hannon has performed at Copper Breaks before. He offers school workshops for grade levels K through 12, Teacher In Service training, and Community concerts.
