A Western Music Association sponsored event tonight featured songcatcher Judy Coder from Topeka, Kansas, who performed on guitar and also yodeled several of her Western songs. The event was held at the ranch of attorney Robert E. Fee, in the charming Saint Ann Chapel located on his property in the Tucson Country Club Estates.
Judy performed several songs from her three CDs: a lively rendition of “I Want to be a Cowboy’s Sweetheart”, the popular “Shine on Rocky Mountain Moonlight”, and even the slow, melodious “Liberty Waltz”. She said she was inspired to sing her Western style music from Patsy Montana, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. Judy also sang her version of “16 Pounds” as well as the “Mourning Dove Song” with cooing sounds like a dove. I especially enjoyed her yodeling, which was a treat here in Tucson for the approximately 25 people in the audience. Judy also spoke of the 150th celebration of statehood for her home state of Kansas.
