As part of the Harwood Community Day, Steve Cormier will perform songs gathered from the open range. Some have been passed down from cowboys who worked the West in the 19th and 20th centuries while others are inspired by Cormier’s own experience as a ranch and farm hand. Full of adventure, love, death, and tributes to their mounts, tap your toes to these beats while learning something new about life in the West.
Steve Cormier earned a Ph.D. in American Studies from the University of New Mexico, with a dissertation on twentieth century New Mexico ranching. He has published chapters on ranching in two books, “Essays in Twentieth Century New Mexico History”(UNM Press) and “The Multicultural Southwest” (University of Arizona Press). From 1979 to 1988, he worked on ranches and farms in the Flint Hills of Kansas and around Santa Rosa and Fort Sumner, NM. His music derives from that experience. He also has played supporting roles in numerous television shows and films, including “Breaking Bad”, “Gunsmoke” and “Wyatt Earp.” He has recorded several albums.
Tickets include free access to the museum and exhibitions as well as special activities throughout the day!
