The Old West Fest has been a benefit event Benefiting the Kansas Agriculture and Rural Leadership Program for the last 24 years making it the longest running event for the KARL Program. It has alternated between the Dodge City and Garden City areas with great success in both cities. This year we are pleased to host Michael Martin Murphey.
In the early 1970s, Rolling Stone Magazine called Michael Martin Murphey “one of the best songwriters in America.” Since that time, Murphey has left an indelible mark on the American Music Landscape crafting and recording such iconic hits as “Wildfire,” “Carolina In The Pines,” “Geronimo’s Cadillac,” “Cowboy Logic,” “Cherokee Fiddle,” “Boy From The Country” and more. In the process, he has topped the Pop, Country, Bluegrass, and Western Music charts, earned six gold albums and multiple Grammy nominations.
There are many levels of participation from just concert tickets to the pre concert party. For those interested in a meet and greet with a multiple course dinner we have other sponsorship available call 785-532 6300.
