The EOCENES

THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, SEPT. 15 & 16, 2022 – Check back for confirmation on dates! We’re hoping we’ll be ready to have a show, but want to keep everyone safe!

Round-Up wouldn’t be Round-Up without two big nights of bluegrass. Ron Emmons, well known as the front man for the popular Cabbage Hill bluegrass band, will bring his classmates Hugh McClellan, Duane Boyer and Hal Spence back to Round-Up Week. The group will be joined by Alan Feves on bass and National Oldtime Fiddle Champion Doug Jenkins on fiddle. Our auditorium has wonderful acoustics and this show provides the perfect break from the hustle and bustle of downtown for you and your rodeo guests.
