CASPER, Wyo. — Successful solo country western artists Kerry Grombacher and Aspen Black will be performing as a duo Tuesday, September 28 in Casper.

Rooted in the traditions of English ballads, Appalachian string-bands, and the corridors of the desert Southwest, “their songs tell stories of the people and events that shaped the West,” ARTCORE said.

Kerry Grombacher plays guitar and mandolin. He’s been featured on the ABC-TV adventure travel show, “Born to Explore.” Original songs from his six albums have been covered by Jim Jones, Belinda Gail, The Texas Trailhands, Gary Prescott, and Trails & Rails. There’s a room named for him at the Sands Motel in Grants, New Mexico, on Historic Route 66.

Guitarist, bassist, and songwriter Aspen Black’s CD “Lovin’ the West” won the 2017 Rural Roots Music Commission’s Classic Western CD of the Year. Her “Eastern Western Cowgirl” CD won the 2015 Rural Roots Music Commission Female Country-Western CD of the Year.

Performing together since 2014, the duo also often performs and hosts educational programs for schools and libraries.

The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. at The Lyric theater in downtown Casper. A cash bar will be available.
