Miss “V”-The Gypsy Cowbelle in Concert at BCAC Friday, Nov. 11“Nothing Fancy but Guaranteed Authentic”Independent recording and roving country artist Miss “V” appears in concert at the Basin City Arts Center on Friday, Nov. 11 at 7 p.m. Traveling from the Wyoming Rockies, “V”-The Gypsy Cowbelle brings her signature “Classic Country” music to Basin accompanying her engaging lyrics and campfire vocals with strong rhythms on the acoustic guitar and old-time frailing on her homemade banjo. To honor Veteran’s Day “V” will include songs that speak to the sacrifice America’s Veterans have made to secure our freedom and way of life.“V”s compelling ballads depict a cross-section of history, lifestyles, and emotions stemming from two decades spent exploring America and living on a remote homestead with no modern amenities. Clever lyrics, rich vocals, banjo, guitar and autoharp blend classic country, folk and cowboy music to create her unique ‘Cowbilly’ sound.Miss “V” has a B.A. degree in History from New York State University College at Geneseo and has hosted workshops for all ages on homemade instruments, songwriting, women’s and Western history, and The Modern Day Homesteader. She has honed her homesteader skills such as haying and logging with horses, building saddles and elk hide britches, sewing on treadle machines, shoeing horses, grocery shopping once a year, canning food, concocting herbal remedies, and entertaining around campfires and woodstoves.“V” has been featured in the pictorial book, "Wyoming Working Girls," and at the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nev.; Ten Sleep’s Nowoodstock Festival; the Wyoming PBS “Wind River Music Showcase”, and appears in a small role in Robert Redford’s movie “The Conspirator” in which she plays her song Mary Surratt. She has self-produced four CDs.Come on down to the Basin City Arts Center on Friday, Nov. 11 at 7p.m. and enjoy a heartwarming evening of country classics including old favorites like Folsom Prison Blues, I Saw the Light, Ghost Riders, Redheaded Stranger, Rocky Top, and more including a special tribute to America’s Veterans!
