The 2015 Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival, presented by Logix Federal Credit Union, will bring a wider range of rockin’ musical genres than ever hosted before in the wildest Western event of the season. From Cowboy crooning to Rockabilly rhythm, more than 40 musical acts will shake up four stages at William S. Hart Park and three venues in Old Town Newhall.

Admission to the main Cowboy Festival on Saturday, April 18 and Sunday, April 19 at William S. Hart Park includes access to performances by 15 bands and artists on four different stages: the Logix Stage, the Wild West Stage, Hart Hall and the Cowboy Corral.

On Saturday and Sunday, the Logix Stage and Hart Hall will light up with the Western swing and classic country sound of the Carolyn Sills Combo and the jaw-dropping musicianship of Allegretto & Espinoza. Bluegrass and folk performances will also take to both stages with Sons & Brothers, Old Salt Union, The Get Down Boys and The Haunted Windchimes.

The Wild West Stage at Hart Park will host young Western music sensations Mikki Daniel and Kristyn Harris, followed by Cowboy storytelling from Joe Herrington and dazzling magic acts from Pop Haydn. Performances at the Cowboy Corral will get festival-goers into the Wild West mood with the authentic Civil War Brass Band music of the Band of the California Battalion, the intertribal pow wow drum group Wild Horse Singers and Dancers and the gun spinning of Hollywood Gun Coach Joey Dillon.

Separate ticketed performances are available for purchase from Friday, April 17 through Sunday, April 19 at the Canyon Theatre Guild, located at 24266 Main Street, Repertory East Playhouse, located at 24242 Main Street and The Vu Bar and Lounge, located at 22505 8th Street.
