Luke Bell and Pat Reedy

Luke Bell and Pat Reedy at BCAC Sunday, Nov. 18

Two Wyoming guitar pickers, Luke Bell and Pat Reedy, are now beginning a joint tour from Wyoming down to New Orleans in the traditional style of Woody Guthrie with only the common goal of bringing music and good times to the ears of those in the passing towns. The two will be at the Basin City Arts Center on Sunday, November 18 at 3 p.m. to perform their original songs each playing for one hour.

Born in Kentucky and raised in Cody, Wyoming, Luke Bell’s music is shaped by his lineage of ranchers, tobacco farmers, and ministers. Luke spent his summers living and working on his grandparent’s ranch in Shell. This young singer/songwriter naturally brings us a blend of the old time blues/country sound and contemporary lyricism about poverty, loss, hardship, and redemption.

A vagabond, Pat Reedy spent years of his life working blue collar jobs and taking in the country. His deep baritone voice carries a home spun charisma, a sound true to his life and work. "My songs come from work, women, love, hate and all that. They come from hard times and good ones too." Reedy's songs are raw, stripped down country sung straight from the heart. Timeless and original.

Bell and Reedy at the BCAC Sunday, Nov. 18 at 3 p.m. Tickets at the door starting at 2:30 are adults $10 and seniors $8 with children and students k-12 free. The Basin City Arts Center located on Main Street across from the IGA in Basin, Wyoming is a non-profit organization developing and supporting the arts in the Big Horn Basin.
