Rob Dinwoodie, A cowboy poet in the 21st Century

Admission is by donation.  Suggested donation is $2 for adults, $1 for children

Rob Dinwoodie works as a Range Manager for the Okanagan Shuswap district of the Ministry of Forests Lands and Natural Resources for 25 years and has gained an appreciation for both the history of the area and the characters that were involved in establishing the local and provincial ranching industry.

Rob has been a songwriter for most of his life and enjoys retelling the stories of the west through this means. The past 8 years Rob has produced and entertained folks from all over the world at the Cowboy Dinner Show held every summer at Vernon's Okeefe Ranch. Rob's desire is to make history of the cowboy come alive through song, story and cowboy poetry.

As anyone who spends time in the saddle knows the cowboy lifestyle is alive and well in British Columbia in the 21st Century. Rob Dinwoodie is one of those who can attest to this and he does so in song and rhyme. Revealing the tall tales and campfire songs that make up the tradition of cowboy poetry, Dinwoodie will share his poetry, music and knowledge of the ranching history in the South Okanagan.
