Gypsy Cowbelle brings history and music to Eagle Library on Tuesday
EAGLE — A mix of history and music will come together Tuesday when the Eagle County Historical Society and Eagle Valley Library District host a visit from the Gypsy Cowbelle, Rubie Belle. The program begins at 6 p.m. at the Eagle Public Library. The public is invited to this free event.
“Miss V,” as she prefers to be known, will present her “Trails West” program, focusing on the exciting post-Civil War era. Through stories and songs, the Gypsy Cowbelle will conduct a tour through a time of exploration and the settling of the American West. Her unique talents will bring to life colorful characters that helped shape American history including tie hacks, cowhands, pioneers and outlaws.
Belle lives on a ranch in a remote part of Wyoming, where she is something of a modern-day homesteader. She has produced five CDs and one documentary; performed at the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nev.; has been featured in books, magazines, newspapers, television and radio shows nationwide; and is endorsed by the Wyoming Arts Council.
