Bar J Wranglers: Cowboy Music from Wyoming
The Bar J Wranglers perform cowboy music from Wyoming, another in the Homegrown Concert Series sponsored by the American Folklife Center.
Event Date
October 02, 2008
-  The Bar J Wranglers, made up of retired cowboy singer Babe Humphrey's oldest son, Scott, his youngest son, Bryan, his adopted son, Tim Hodgson, and his friends Donnie Cook and Danny Rogers, are cowboys by choice, and honest-to-goodness cowboy musicians by graceful talent. At the Bar J Ranch that lies beneath the dramatic skyline of Wyoming's Teton Range, just beyond the town of Wilson (pop. 200), the Bar J Wranglers' nightly supper show attracts a regional audience and a "seeking-the-western-way-of-life-from-May-through-September" crowd. The Wranglers stick to a classic cowboy repertoire, drawing from Hollywood crooners like Roy Rogers and Gene Autry, and cowboy musicians such as Sons of the Pioneers, performing music their fans grew up with.
