LOGAN  — Three local cowboy musicians will grace the stage at the new Carol and Jim Laub Plaza on Tuesday, June 4.

The free concert will be performed by Dale Major and Chris Mortensen, both from Avon, and Zach Martinez of Lewiston, from 6 to 8 p.m.

The event is expected to draw most of its audience from Cache Valley’s temporary population of summer citizens, but everyone is invited, according to its organizers.

As one of the founders of the Cache Valley Cowboy Rendezvous, Major is a familiar face – and voice – in Utah country-western circles.

Major is a gifted guitarist, who can also be expected to contribute western poetry and wry commentary to give the evening a loose, feed-good vibe.

Mortensen is an equally experienced singer and songwriter, with more than 60 original song and pieces of poetry to this credit.

He has played in local bands for more than five decades. His latest CD release, called “Ride My Pony,” has topped the western album charts for a year and was nominated for Western Album of the Year by the Academy of Western Artists.

Mortensen is a member of the International Western Music Association as well as the Cowboy Poets of Utah & Idaho.

Martinez is almost as passionate about being an authentic horseman and cowboy as he is about writing western music.

The audience at the June 4 concert can expect to be engulfed into the beauty of the West’s unique culture by Martinez’s music, humorous stories and his curious outlook on life.

The Carol and Jim Laub Plaza is located at 55 North Main Street in downtown Logan.
