Jun 9 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

BUFFALO — The famous Occidental Hotel Thursday night jam is celebrating 10 years of weekly musical community gatherings. A summer of musical events, commemorative items and celebrations is being planned, culminating in a huge anniversary concert.

“It is significant the Occidental Jam has lasted 10 years and is still going strong,” said Lynn Young, an organizer of the event and an original founder of the jam.

“It’s not just about music, but it’s about a viable community coming together to celebrate weekly fellowship and caring for each other,” he continued. “We have decided to name our celebration ‘More Than Music’ to recognize the jam’s significance to our community.”

A Summer of Music concert series at the Occidental is being planned to help celebrate the “More Than Music” anniversary. Shows will include Michael Martin Murphy on June 11 and bluegrass legend David Parmley and Cardinal Tradition on July 31. Several free appearances by Occidental jammers will take place throughout the summer.

The final celebration will end with a special 10th anniversary jam on Oct. 13 at the Occidental, and an Oct. 15 “More Than Music” concert at the Bomber Mountain Civic Center featuring award winning artists Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum, local favorite Jalan Crossland, Nashville songwriters Brice Long and Kostas, along with local bands Prairie Wildfire, Too Wet to Plow, Band of Outlaws and more.

The More Than Music celebration is being sponsored by the Dan Carlat-Occidental Jam Memorial Scholarship Fund and all proceeds from the sale of commemorative items and concerts will go to the fund.

More information can be found on the Occidental Hotel website, www.occidentalwyoming.com and the Dan Carlat – Occidental Jam Memorial Scholarship Fund Facebook page.

Library to host writing workshop with Lori Howe on June 14 @ Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library
Jun 14 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library will sponsor a free writing workshop by Lori Howe on June 14 from 6-8 p.m. in the Inner Circle.

Howe’s program, “All the Water in Wyoming: Poems and Personal Essays” will allow participants to write on the meanings of water in Wyoming, whether via poetry or personal essay. Your knowledge, memories and thoughts are the ink on the page in this workshop, which features a dedicated issue of “Clerestory: Poems of the Mountain West.”

When participants leave the workshop, they will have a strong framework and approach for writing creatively about matters of great importance to them as Wyoming citizens, drawing on their own knowledge and experience to add their voices critically and meaningfully to ongoing, community and state conversations — some, through the venue of publication.

Howe is the author of “Cloudshade: Poems of the High Plains” and “Voices at Twilight: A Poet’s Guide to Wyoming Ghost Towns.” She has taught English and creative writing workshops for the last decade at the University of Wyoming and Laramie County Community College.

She holds a bachelor’s in English and Spanish, a master’s in English, a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from UW and is a doctoral candidate in literacy studies at UW, with a focus on critical thinking skills and creativity for struggling writers.

She teaches workshops for the Wyoming Latina project and the Wyoming Writing Project, and has been a guest poet on Wyoming Public Radio. She is editor in chief of “Clerestory: Poems of the Mountain West,” an online literary magazine dedicated to showcasing the work of Wyoming writers.

“Water in Wyoming” is presented by the Wyoming Humanities Council as part of its ThinkWY Road Scholars Tours program. The Wyoming Humanities Council provides public humanities-based programs in partnership with local organizations and is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities with additional support from private donors and the Wyoming Legislature.

The Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library is located at 335 W. Alger St.
