Don's Blog Red Dirt Music Concert 8-2-16

We are in Estes Park Colorado and tonight I went to a Red Dirt Music Concert by Bob Smallwood
of Glen Haven and his group. He was a wizard on the guitar but sang fairly flat making up for it with his personality.

Red Dirt music is a music genre whose name derives from the color of the soil in Oklahoma. There is
also a sub-genre of Texas Red Dirt  music. Outlaw Country singers Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson have
exemplified the Texas style while singer/songwriter Bob Childers began the movement at his country house "The Farm" in Stillwater,Oklahoma. It was an enjoyable evening.
