The Modern West – Music

The Modern West #12: Wide-Ranging Sounds On The Open Range

The old saw may be “We play both kinds of music, Country AND Western,” but melody in the mountains is more than guitars and campfires. If you would like to listen, click hereEditor’s note: This podcast originally aired on June 20, 2016.

The Modern West Site

The Modern West is a destination for those who want to experience the West both past and present. It’s a rich collection of cultural stories, news, oral histories, artist performances and podcasts that draw from original Wyoming Public Media productions as well as a variety of sources linked to major Wyoming cultural sites. 

If you live in Wyoming or other western states, you’ll experience what you already know and discover much that you don’t. If you’re looking for a deep dive into the ethos of the West, you’ll find a rich trove of information that will enrich your experience and understanding of this vast land. 

Experience The Modern West through stories of coal miners and cowboys, Native Americans and scientists, wildlife and livestock—from our wind-swept prairies and soaring mountains.
