Cowboy Poet Baxter Black will help save Amador County Fair



The Amador County Fair Foundation was formed in 2008, three years before Governor Jerry Brown drew a line through the State's budget eliminating all funding for the network of California's Fairs. Since that time, with the motto of "Help Save Our Fair" it has raised more than $175,000 on behalf of the Amador County Fair.

In October the Association is holding a fund-raiser featuring the most famous cowboy poet and humorist of our time, Baxter Black.  Featured on National Public Radio, frequent guest on late night television, and friend to cowboys, ranchers and farmers, he has rhymed his way into the national spotlight and is the best selling cowboy poet in the world.
 
Baxter is a cowboy raised in New Mexico and claims he can shoe a horse and string a barb wire fence. He is an former large animal veterinarian, and admits he is a sorry team roper. This excerpt is taken from his promotional materials – "Everything about Baxter is cowboy; his cartoonish mustache, his personality and his poetry. He makes a living shining a spotlight on the flaws and foibles of everyday cowboy life, the day-to-day ups and downs of people who live with livestock and work the land. He demonstrates that it is the truth in his humor that makes it funny. Driven by a left hand sense of humor Black evokes laughter just by being there."
   
The fundraiser will be held at the Amador County Fairgrounds in Pokerville Hall October 18, 2013. Doors open at 5:30 pm. Tickets are $45 with a no-host bar. Also appearing are The Old West Trio performing classic cowboy tunes. Advance purchase of tickets is advised by calling (209) 245-6921 or visit the website at: www.amadorfairfoundation.org/events.html. Credit cards are accepted over the phone.

For more information about the Amador County Fair or the Foundation visit www.AmadorCountyFair.com.
