Mike Beck Live at the Western Folklife Center-AND A Walking Tour!

Two great events in one evening on July 18, 2019:

Start the evening out at 5:30 pm with a free, guided downtown Elko walking tour of our Portraits of the Gathering exhibition, featured on many storefronts. We’ll see only a fraction of the many portraits available for viewing (more tours coming up) and enjoy the portraits and poetry - and you can use your mobile device to access a QR code to listen to the poem, performed by the artist, and learn more about the artist.

The Pioneer Saloon doors open at 6:00 pm, serving refreshing beverages and offering delicious snacks provided by The Star Hotel. Enjoy a walk through our Wiegand Gallery exhibitions, with more Portraits of the Gathering and the beautiful I’ve Got Spurs. The doors to the G Three Bar Theater open at 6:30 pm.

Then, at 7:00 pm, acclaimed contemporary cowboy singer/songwriter Mike Beck returns to Elko and the Western Folklife Center stage for a one-night concert of acoustic music and stories.

Admission to the concert is $15; $10 for Western Folklife Center members, seniors and students; and $5 for kids. Tickets available at the Western Folklife Center Gift Shop or at the door (please, cash or check only at the door).
