2018 Performers

Glenn Moreland

Ft. Davis, Texas

Glenn began playing the fiddle and guitar in the late ‘60s around Austin. He fell in love with cowboy songs and later, took up the fiddle to learn the tunes that were the favorites of the cowhands. Working as a cowboy in West Texas, he added many songs to his repertoire including some that he wrote. He has been nominated by his peers as a performing musician to the Academy of Western Artists. He received the Heritage Award from the Texas Cowboy Poetry Gathering in 2006.

Glenn’s quick wit, wry humor and knowledge of cowboy history make him a favorite performer. Sometimes solo, and sometimes with his partner, Washtub Jerry, he has entertained over much of the Southwest, from the Big Bend Ranch to trail drives in New Mexico, as well as many cowboy music festivals throughout Texas, Arizona and New Mexico. He is also a chuckwagon cook, receiving the Will Rogers
Award for Chuckwagon of the Year in 1997. He lives and works in Fort Davis with his wife, Patty.
