Cowboy singer, poet Butch Martin to appear at Marshall library

Butch Martin has spent most of his life doing the things he writes and sings about, from the farm in Illinois where he was born, to the ranch in Wyoming where he raised Morgan horses, to Oregon, where he now resides.

Today, Martin spends most of his time writing poetry and performing at shows in the Rogue River Valley and other places throughout the West.

He is known as the “drifter poet/balladeer,” probably because he has lived so many places. Along with his busy entertaining schedule, Butch and his partner, Liz, operate the Rogue Valley Carriage and Wagon Service, offering mule-drawn rides.

Martin is scheduled appear with singer Christina Duane at the Marshall Public Library at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 19, in the Dale McConchie Meeting Room.

He will talk about his life, sing a few songs and recite some original poetry. CDs will be available for purchase.

Registration for the program is encouraged, as space is limited. Call the library at 217-826-2535 for more information or to register.

Marshall Public Library is located at 612 Archer Ave., in Marshall, Ill., and is handicapped-accessible. Allow 48 hours’ notice for special arrangements.
