“Portrait of a Cowgirl” is the newest CD release of Canadian Singer/Songwriter/Yodeler and multi-talented musician ELI BARSI
Eli Barsi  calls in Saskatchewan, Canada. A returning guest, we catch up with this multi-talented, award winning singer/songwriter/performer/entertainer.
We chat about Eli’s newest CD project, “Portrait of a Cowgirl”  featuring all original music. Beginning with the first track, “Farm Girl,” the songs follow her life from “pickin’ up rocks on my daddy’s farm,” to her first trip to Nashville so wonderfully shared in “Hitch Your Wagon to A Star.” She covers the heart ache and joy of loving the rodeo life and those that choose that path, touches on the birth of the Calgary Stampede, and celebrates her love of great toe tappin’ music with “Country Music Was Made for Saturday Night.” Along the way you”ll enjoy her soaring vocals, a yodel here and there, and by the last track you’ve seen her life through her very own special “Window of the West.” She shares the background story to “Prairie Skies.” Although Eli is only on live with us for the first half of the hour, we continue to play music of the album throughout the show.
Eli Barsi returns to the Santa Clarita Valley on Thursday, January 2, 2014 for the first of the 2014 SCVTV Presents The OutWest Concert Series  sharing the evening with Colorado Cowboy Barry Ward. Calling themselves, “Crossing Borders,” it’ll be a great night of live music with two of the top musicians in the world of Western music. Tickets available at OutWest, 661.255.7087.

Author and Editor of several local publications including “Canyon Country Magazine,” Martha Michael, joins us for the second half of the show. A resident of the Santa Clarita Valley for 16 years, she tells the story of Canyon Country’s history, which spans approximately 1,500 years, using safeguarded photographs from the Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society, dozens of other sources, and her own personal collection. Published by Arcadia Press as part of their Images of America series, “Canyon Country”  features our community’s story through fascinating photographs and engaging text.
Tune in to hear how Martha Michael got started on this ambitious project and what she learned along the way. Discover, as we did, the fascinating story of our town and its inhabitants. What’s the story behind some of our most cherished businesses on Sierra Highway - like Fox Feed? What was the original business in the building that became Le Chene, the wonderful restaurant we know today? What significant event happened at Lang Station? There’s a well known story of gold found in Placerita Canyon – what about the Red Rover Mine? Before it was known as “Canyon Country” what was it called?
Martha shares, with great enthusiasm and passion, the back story to the book and the gathering of information – much of it from live interviews with long-time residents. She shares some “AHA Moments” too!
