Galaxy Series presents “Western Night”
The Galaxy Series “Western Night” brought 103 students and members of the community to Memorial Hall, Tuesday.
Abby Maginnis, of Whitman, and her family performed during the event as the Carr Family Cowboy Band.
“I haven’t showcased many songs that I have written yet,” Maginnis said. “[My writing is] mostly from [my] life experiences. Honestly, ranching is a lot of the inspiration.”
Maginnis performed with her sister, her brother and her two parents. She said she has been performing since she was little and her father started the kids on playing the fiddle when they turned six.
Maginnis also introduced the two featured poets for the night, Marty Blocker and R.P. Smith.
Blocker has been featured on the cover of the Cowboy Magazine. He was also the featured artist at the 2010 National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada. Smith is a local cowboy who travels and loves to entertain with his family.
