Wyoming Roster Artist Miss "V" The Gypsy Cowbelle busy touring

The Gypsy Cowbelle is currently on her "Can't Stand Still" tour. Following up debut appearances in the Southeast on her March "Southern Exposure" tour, Miss "V" made her way back out West with performances in Michigan and South Dakota. On her way, she plowed with a team of oxen, auditioned for a movie, eluded rattlers and "The Plague" while wandering through the Badlands. The "Can't Stand Still" kicked off last Thursday at the Occidental Hotel in Buffalo; the next day, she performed for locals and residents at the Buffalo Senior Center. "Ed. note on "The Plague" reference: Wondering about what "eluding the "The Plague" referred to, I asked, "Is this the name of the movie?" Nope. On her sojurn, she often turns onto dirt roads off other dirt roads. This particular dirt road where she stopped, to sing under the full moon with her car doors flung wide open, had a posted sign, "Be advised, this area has been designated as a plague area." Not to worry, "V's" okay, adding, "I didn't handle any dead varmints and didn't get bit by any fleas."

She crossed over the Big Horns to play for a memorial service at the Lost Village Saloon outside of Red Lodge, MT. Moving on to Bozeman, an interview with Bob Butts followed the next day on KGLT, the local radio station. She has appeared on Bob's show periodically since 2008, and this time he featured tracks off her new CD release, "The Itinerant Lady" (November 2011). Then on to an interview with the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, for an article which will appear in Friday's paper.

On May 11, she will return to Norris Hot Springs to perform at 7 pm. On Saturday, "V" performs at Ted's Montana Grill in Bozeman at 7 pm, and the tour concludes with a performance at the Kountry Korner Cafe at the Four Courners, where she will be appearing at 6pm with the legendary songwriter and performer, Kostas, who has penned some of "V"s favorite songs for such icons as Dwight Yoakam, Patty Loveless and Emmy Lou Harris. Suffice to say, this opportunity will go down in her journals as one of the Great Honors of her musical career!

Back in Wyoming, look for "V" at "Voices of the Basin" Opening Reception at the Washakie County Musuem on May 31st at 5:30 pm. This is a family oriented exhibit, which tells the stories of early settlers and their families to the Big Horn Basin through oral histories from the Wahakie Museum archives. FMI on this exhibit and the Museum:

Earlier this year, serendipitious for sure, while performing on the open stage at the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Baxter Black was in the audience catching some of the acts, and asked "V" to open for his show the next day. Click on "Saturday, February 4" and then the "Saturday Special" link.
