Brent Moyer, the "Global Cowboy," fresh from the 2018 World Nomad Games in Kyrgyzstan, will be back at Bert's Bar in Matlacha this Sunday, Jan. 13 ,at 2 p.m.

"As always, it will be a great show," said Bernard Johnson, owner of Bert's Bar. "Pure Americana at it's best with brand new country star Austin Church, Joe Sun ("Old Flames Can't Hold a Candle to You") and the Island's favorite son, Jimmy Jensen."

Where is Kyrgystan and what are the World Nomad Games? Kyrgyz Republic is a rugged, Central Asian country along the Silk Road, the ancient trade route between China and the Mediterranean, and the World Nomad Games is an international sport competition dedicated the ethnic sports practiced in Central Asia.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming, songbird Christine Langdon; Marco Island Florida fiddler J. Robert Houghtaling; and Moyer formed The Western Trio and traveled to Cholpon-Ata, Kyrgyzstan, to perform their hybrid style of country and western music.

Moyer, raised in the mountains of Wyoming, delivers classical "heartland" sounds with his baritone voice and high-energy guitar style. He melds together the American sounds of country, R&B and Americana.

Moyer is known as the "Global Cowboy" because he has shared the stage with famous artists such as Willie Nelson and Donna Summer. He's performed on Broadway in the hit musical "Ring of Fire," performing songs of the great Johnny Cash, and worked as a producer and studio musician on numerous CDs and recorded 14 albums of original material with his songs covered by artists in Europe and North America.

"Brent is a true craftsman who's done a ton of albums and even performed on Broadway at the Ethel Barrymore Theater performing the songs of Johnny Cash," Johnson said. "His performance is an intricate melding of American musical genres; country, R&B and Americana. I hope everyone comes out for this great performance, this will be a fun time for everyone."

Bert's Bar is located at 4271 Pine Island Road, Matlacha. For additional information, please call 239- 282-3232.
