Booth Western Art Museum is set to honor the life, spirit and legacy of one of its own. Entertainer and museum manager Doc Stovall was killed last month in an early-morning, two-car crash. Police have not filed charges against the other driver.
The tribute concert is set for Saturday, April 21, at 2 p.m. in the Booth Ballroom and free and open to the public.
It will celebrate Stovall's influence in preserving the cowboy culture, and will include performances by members of his band, The Tumbleweed Cowboy Band, several people reciting cowboy poetry, and gun tricks and humor by Emcee Jim Dunham, who also serves as the Booth's director of Special Projects.
"Doc Stovall was very influential in passing along the love and interest in cowboy music—and especially cowboy poetry," Booth Museum Executive Director Seth Hopkins said in a press release. "This Tribute Concert is meant to honor him and the legacy he has left and also to allow those he influenced to share some of Doc's favorite cowboy music and poetry. It will be an uplifting event, and we invite everyone interested in honoring his life to attend."
