ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Marinna Mori is an 11-year-old singer, guitarist, and poet who lives and works on her family’s ranch near Tuscarora, Nevada. A fourth-generation rancher, Marinna brings her youthful perspective and personal experiences of ranch life to her original songs and performances. Music is a family affair, and Marinna learned to play guitar and sing from her grandfather. She has been performing at the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering since she was eight years old. She loves roping, branding, and working cows on horseback. She won the Junior Branding Champion title at the 2018 Carlin Bronco Bash in Carlin, Nevada.
Trinity Seely grew up in the heart of cow country in the Chilcotin region of British Columbia. Inspired at an early age by this rugged sea of jackpine forests and grasslands, she learned to work hard from kitchen to corral on the family’s guest ranch. As a teen, Trinity moved to California to attend The Thacher School, and her love affair with the vaquero way was born. With humbling honesty and a honey-smooth voice, Trinity sings about loving cowboys and horses, and living “in the middle of nowhere.” She flourishes as a cowboy’s wife and mother to three buckaroos and a buckarette.
"Cricket Roll" words & music by Trinity Seely.
