He appeared quite frequently on Public Radio's "A Prairie Home Companion" during the show's formative years and for the last four decades he has worked his cowboy magic throughout 44 states and 10 countries.

His cowboy anthems crackle with the warmth of a prairie campfire and his old-time fiddle tunes set toes a tappin' while he serves up spellbinding rope tricks and tall stories -- all with a good dose of friendly humor.

The event is free and open to all ages. This project was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

When: 11 a.m. Friday May 10

Where: 306 Mill Street West

Cost: Free
