For those of you who are interested:

Andy was recently honored to be a part of a video project the Nevada Museum of Art was doing for an exhibit during the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering at Elko, NV, where Andy performed a few weeks ago. The video is of Andy and two other reciters (Joel Nelson and Jerry Brooks) reciting the introduction to a long poem called "Grass". The introduction is entitled "Anthem", and was written by a cowboy poet friend of Andy's named Buck Ramsey who passed away a few years ago. The video was filmed in Alpine, TX, and Nevada, and begins with Buck Ramsey's voice from a recording from 1993.

It happens to be one of my favorite poems. I think if you appreciate artistically done videography that you will enjoy it.

You can watch it online here.

Let us know what you think!
