‘Zen Cowboy’ returns tonight for Chautauqua County performance

JAMESTOWN – “Zen Cowboy” Chuck Pyle will make a return visit to Chau-tauqua County at 7 p.m. tonight when he performs a special show at Trinity Guitars Back Room in Jamestown. He will then present his acclaimed “Free the Thumb; Fire the Band” fingerstyle guitar workshop Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Admired as a sly humor-ist and an innovative guitarist, Chuck Pyle has performed for the Colorado Legislature, on Austin City Limits, and at Bill Gates’ home. He’s had his songs recorded by John Denver, Chris LeDoux, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band & Jerry Jeff Walker. He sees what’s best about America, writing songs about love lost & love found, forgetful cowboys, heroic highway patrolmen, and brain stems gone “critical.”

Folks around here also know him as a feature performer at the Mayville Blue-grass and Folk Festivals.

Tickets for the concert are $20 and can be purchased at Trinity Guitars, 800 W. 3rd Street, Jamestown. Workshop reservation is $65. Seating is very limited, so call 665-4490 or stop in ti Trinity Guitars to get a seat. Tickets and info at
