Award-winning Western vocalist Mary Kaye will join the Santa Clarita Valley’s own Cross Town Cowboys Saturday, Sept. 17, as the OutWest Boutique and Cultural Center takes the show on the road – actually just down the street – to Heritage Junction Historic Park in Newhall.
Mary Kaye was born and raised in the South and currently lives in the small pioneer town of Manti, Utah. A member of the Western Music Association, she was named Female Vocalist of the Year in 2010 by the Academy of Western Artists.
Hanging their hats in Acton, the Cross Town Cowboys are Dusty Hart (vocals, guitar, mandolin, fiddle), Buffalo Bryan (vocals, bass fiddle, banjo, guitar) and Robbie Bausch (vocals and guitar). Hart and Bryan met in 2007 at the Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival and Bausch joined them a year later. They’ve been kicking it up ever since, and are making a name for themselves as the follow the path to stardom.
Both have performed in previous OutWest concerts, which are usually staged inside Jim and Bobbi Jean Bell’s Western apparel and gift shop on Newhall’s Main Street. This time the proprietors hitched up with the Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society to open the concert to a wider audience at the society’s location inside Hart Park. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert starts at 7 p.m.
Earlier in the day, Mary Kaye and the Cross Town Cowboys will make an appearance on the “Around the Barn” radio show, co-hosted by Bobbi Jean Bell on KHTS AM-1220 at 9 a.m.
The performers’ past concerts can be seen on SCVTV.com under Music/OutWest Concert Series.
