The Back 40
Saturday March 30th, 2019 with Gord Peeling
The new release from Dom Flemons explores the musical legacy of black cowboys.

The legacy of African American cowboys will be featured along with some of the other 'fringe' contributions from the Celtic world like Streets of Laredo and Yippie Ti Yi Yo, Git Along Little Dogies and other cattle driving songs.

Tuned in and raring to go. Sounds great from the get-go, Gord. Black cowboys, a great topic for the B40 and a forgotten chapter of American culture.
