The Arkansas Valley Board of Directors welcomes you to its next concert in the 2019-2020 season at 7 p.m. on Friday night at the Ed Stafford Theatre on the Otero Junior College Campus in La Junta. Caitlin Taussig is featured with her western folk music.
Caitlyn writes, "I will be playing my originals and talk about my songwriting, but for that long a show I'll also play covers (I cover a lot of artists, but some examples are Bob Dylan, guy Clark, and Dolly Parton. Sometimes I even do modern pop with a folky twist!"
A fourth-generation rancher from Kremmling, Colo., Caitlyn Taussig sings and writes about her life running cow-calf pairs with her mother on their high-country cattle ranch. She draws inspiration for her songwriting from Colorado's rugged and beautiful landscapes, her experiences summering cattle at 9,000 feet, cowboying in rough high country and dark timber, and listening to her late father’s wild stories. Her pure voice and haunting melodies echo the folk and cowboy music she listened to in childhood. An article about the Taussig family appeared in the February 2016 issue of Western Horseman, and they were featured again in the January 2019 New York Times business section photo essay, "Female Ranchers are Reclaiming the American West."
Caitlyn's debut album, The Things We Gave Up, was released in Jan. 2015, and her sophomore album is in the works for 2020. Season tickets are still available, or $20 adult, $10 student at the door. Student season tickets are $25, adult $50.
