The Betty Strong Encounter Center will present “Love of the West” with prairie poet and storyteller Marci Broyhill and songwriter and guitarist Teresa Kay Orr at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 22. Admission will be free; a reception will follow.

“Come enjoy an afternoon of poetry, stories, music and homespun humor that’s bound to enlighten and lift your spirits,” say the artists.

Orr will present original songs reflecting life in the old west, including “Drifter” and “Chasing My Heart Back Home.” Broyhill will recite colorful biographical stories of Elizabeth Vickerson with “An Apron Full of Rocks” and young Con Parsons earning his footwear with “Boots.”

Broyhill and Orr are sisters who grew up on a farm along Nebraska’s Outlaw Trail Scenic Byway, Highway 12. They have performed at various western venues in six states.

Orr grew up a farm girl and will always be a farm girl at heart. Her original music reflects her experience of rural living with all its adventures, dreams, heartaches and joy.
