Performances by Clark Crouch
2004 – 2015

This list contains some of the performances by Clark Crouch, Poet Lariat. Inspired by an early 1940s acquaintance with Badger Clark, the classic cowboy poet, coupled with six years as a youthful cowboy, Clark began writing and performing western and cowboy poetry in 2002 at the age of 73.

Clark has performed throughout the Northwest as well as in Wyoming and British Columbia. He currently has thirteen books of poetry in print, nine of which contain only traditional western and cowboy poems. In addition, he has edited four poetic anthologies featuring both traditional and modern poems by contemporary poets.
