Cowboy Poet Bob Petermann At Mondak Heritage Center
The MonDak Heritage Center will host Cowboy Poet Bob Petermann on Sat., Jan. 23 at 1 p.m. The concert is free and open to the public.
Bob Petermann hails from Wibaux County, where he was raised on his family's ranch and still resides today. His family entertained themselves with country and gospel music, and his older brother, Ernie, taught Bob to play the guitar when Bob was eight years old. Bob now has a repertoire of nearly 200 cowboy classics, country tunes, gospel standards and songs he has written himself, and has performed for people around the world, from campfires to venues across the West.
Petermann also has three recordings to his credit. His most recent disc is "Dance in the Round Corral," and features art of local artist Trish Stevenson. He thinks of his style of cowboy music as purist, and wants to keep the traditions of the rancher and cowboy poet alive.
On display during the concert will be New Works by the Blue Buffalo Artists. The group displays a wide range of styles including traditional, historic western scenes, sensitive portraits, colorful rodeo and beautifully impressionistic landscapes. Local artists, including Stevenson, Afton Ray Rossol and Rhonda Whited, are part of the exhibit, and all works will be available for purchase after the show.
Tickets to see Cowboy Poet Bob Petermann are completely free and no reservations are necessary. The MonDak Heritage Center is located at 120 3rd Avenue SE in Sidney. If you have any questions, please call the museum at 406-433-3500 or email us at [email protected]
