“Jack Thorp’s Songs of the Cowboys,” by music historians Mark Lee Gardner and Rex Rideout

Gardner and Rideout perform and discuss the cowboy ballads collected by New Mexico cowboy, rancher, surveyor, and state cattle inspector N. Howard “Jack” Thorp, who published the very first book of cowboy songs at Estancia, NM, in 1908. The Palace Press this year debuts a fine-press reprint of the book with illustrations by Ron Kil. Gardner and Rideout use vintage instruments and historic playing styles to present a close approximation of how this music sounded. Free.
