Liz Masterson, a Denver native, has been involved in organizing the Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Arvada since it began in 1990. The singer and yodeler also gives classroom lessons about cowboy poetry and music, and said the efforts to keep the Western traditions alive through today’s youth seem to be paying off.
“I think it’s working real well. I just did (a lesson) out in Nebraska where I spent a week in the schools to talk about singing and yodeling,” Masterson said. “I think kids are really receptive to that. I think it’s a real important mission.”
