“Cowboy Tales” at Jersey Lilly in Ingomar
– Rousing Success
A packed crowd from various parts of Montana, Georgia, Minnesota, and even Alaska enjoyed a wonderful evening of excellent grub, melodious Western music, and cowboy poetry at Ingomar’s Jersey Lilly this October.
“Great food!” “Lots of fun!” “Terrific show!” Co-sponsored by Billings radio station KGHL, the fourth annual “Cowboy Tales” was a rousing success. Audience comments were wildly appreciative of the Jersey Lilly’s superb meal and the spellbinding performances by 2016 Cowboy Idol-winning western singer/musician Almeda Bradshaw, 2016 Cowboy Idol-winning cowboy poet Jim Hamilton, and the outrageous, timeless, hilarious self-titled “cow poet” and author Gwen Petersen.
