Every year for decades, Shelley’s friend invited her to Cowboy Poetry. “Someday” she would say. When that day came in 2015, Shelley was blown away; she loved the stories and the characters telling them.
Shelley began writing her own poetry, based on her experiences of ranch life in central Alberta. She joined the Alberta Cowboy Poetry Association and became the editor of their newsletter - the Barbwire Dispatch. She has performed at cowboy gatherings throughout the west. In 2016, Shelley placed in the Kamloops Cowboy Gathering Poetry Contest and has been both the stage manager and emcee for the Willow Creek Cowboy Gathering in Stavely, AB since 2017.
Shelley released her first CD in 2017 of Cowboy music and poetry. She loves to entertain at events throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan and is available for private and corporate events.
