Cowgirl chanteuse Trinity sings about the California vaqueros. Trinity Seely performs, "We Were the Vaqueros" during the "Cowboy Caffeine, Extra Strong" show at the 36th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
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 Thatcher 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.
