DUNCAN, OK (KSWO) - Cowboy poetry and western music brought people together Friday evening at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center in Duncan. It's the 150th anniversary of the Chisholm Trail, the path that cowboys brought millions of head of cattle from Texas, through Oklahoma and into Kansas.

The center hosted the 3rd annual Campfires, Cattle and Cowboys Gathering on Friday night. The gathering is educational and there are folks that really enjoy it because they don't always have the chance to see live western performances.

Fans of all things cowboy and the west tapped their toes, and laughed at the funny lines of cowboy poetry. The artists who came to perform were excited to share their work.

"In our case, we are talking about something that means a lot to the audience that we're singing to,” Kerry Grombacher, western singer/songwriter said. “A lot of time we are bringing them information that they might not have already. They know basically what the trail was, or they know some things about the west. And what we do with the songs is expand that knowledge."

The event showed that western music has no age limit with a mother-daughter duo performing together.

“I like seeing all the people happy that I’m and I’m still doing it, too,” Alice Black, daughter of Aspen Black.

The event was free to the public, but donations were accepted. If you would like to donate to the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center, visit the center’s website.
