Pop has quite the reputation as a singer, picker, fiddler, lasso twirler, poet and downright funny guy. He appeared frequently on Public Radio's "A Prairie Home Companion" during the show's formative years, and for the last four decades he has worked his cowboy magic throughout 44 states and 10 countries. His cowboy anthems crackle with the warmth of a prairie campfire and his old time fiddle tunes set toes a-tappin' while he serves up spellbinding tall tales with a good dose of friendly humor. Adults and teens.
