Andy Hedges Night of Cowboy Music & Poetry with the Firesides at Mineral Point Opera House Friday, May 15th 7:30pm
Andy Hedges will perform a Night of Cowboy Music & Poetry with the Firesides at the Mineral Point Opera House on Friday, May 15th 7:30pm.

Join cowboy sonsgter and poet, Andy Hedges as well as Mineral Point traditional musicians, Daniel and Meghan of The Firesides for a special evening of cowboy music, poetry, and more!

Andy Hedges is a songster, reciter, storyteller, guitarist, and collector of cowboy songs and poems. The son of an Italian schoolteacher and a rodeo cowboy turned preacher, Andy was born in Lubbock, Texas, in the spring of 1980. He grew up in the small community of Tokio, Texas, where his family paid rent on an old farmhouse by looking after a few head of cattle. It was there that Andy fell in love with traditional music by listening to his fathers cassettes of cowboy songs.

Andys vast and varied repertoire includes classic cowboy poetry recitations, obscure cowboy songs, dust bowl ballads, and blues. He also hosts a podcast, Cowboy Crossroads which features in-depth interviews with fellow musicians and poets. Andy has performed many times with folk legend Ramblin Jack Elliott and the duos performance at the 60th Newport Folk Festival was named one of the 10 Best Things We Saw by Rolling Stone.



Andy could very well carry on the traditions when all of us old guys are gone. I'd feel assured in knowing the music of our great American West was in good hands.

Don Edwards



The Firesides are an old time duo based out of Mineral Point, Wisconsin. They sing and play Appalachian & Midwestern instrumentals, sage cowboy songs, originals, and traditional song-gems.

Meghan and Daniel, who play fiddle and guitar moved to southwest Wisconsin from the Twin Cities where they played separately in the bands, The Floorbirds and The Ditchlilies.

Daniel and Meghan's music is currently featured in the film Cowboys: A Documentary Portrait and they have both performed on numerous festival stages across the US and Europe, on radio programs far and wide, and for countless barn dancesright here is Southwest Wisconsin!
