Trinity shares a true cowboy love song and the difference between "complete" and "finish." Trinity Seely performs "Old Poly Rope" accompanied by Butch Hause during the "Anchoring the Tradition" show at the 35th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
In addition to being a seasoned musician, Butch, a member of a pioneer Colorado family, is a record-producer, sound engineer, two-time Grammy award nominee, and friend to dozens of nationally known entertainers around the country.
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.
