Kristen J. Lloyd sings the song “My Brave” to fourth grade students at Heritage Elementary School on Tuesday. Lloyd was at the school as part of Cache Valley Cowboy Rendezvous Outreach Program, where performers go to schools in the valley. Llloyd talked to the students about being brave when you are afraid.

Cache Valley will be hosting its 12th annual Cowboy Rendezvous this year in celebration of agrarian heritage and the culture of the American West.

The event will be held at the Cache County Event Center March 11 to 13, with most activities free for all ages. In addition to music and poetry, there will be dance classes, a light dinner, a cowboy trading post, and a western-themed church service Sunday morning.

“They have them all over the place - cowboy gatherings,” said Teresa Olsen, one of the organizers for the Cowboy Rendezvous. “(People) get together and it’s like a fun little music festival.”

According to the website for the rendezvous, the “reunion of western musicians, cowboy poets and artisans” will be headlined by musicians Dave Stamey and Missouri-based bluegrass band The Petersens. Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
