This day-long event will feature an organ concert at 11 AM, traditional New Mexican music from Cipriano Vigil and Family at noon, and Western tunes from the Flying J Wranglers at 1:30 PM. Tours of the historic site will occur throughout the day, along with historical lawn games. Arts, crafts, and food will be available for purchase. Visitors are encouraged to bring folding chairs and sunscreen.

For over 30 years, the Flying J Wranglers have been taking audiences back to the Old West with fantastic fiddling, banjo plunking, guitar picking, world-champion yodeling and amazing harmonizing as they sing western ballads telling stories about the great American cowboys of old. Let this New Mexico ensemble lift your spirit with laughter and music from the funny, friendly and talented Flying J Wranglers. This family-friendly entertainment is sure to impress and transport you back in time.

James Hobbs sings lead and tenor, writes western songs, and plays the rhythm guitar. He mixes in his dry humor from time to time, to the delight of some and the confusion of others. A former national champion yodeler, Cindy Hobbs is a strong and pure Western music vocalist who brings a special energy and warmth to the stage. They are joined by bass guitarist/singer Roy Black, guitar/banjo/dobro player Tim McCasland, singer Greg Meeks, and fiddle player Corinna Ripple.

Cipriano Vigil was born and raised in the small village of Chamisal, New Mexico, where he received his early education. Part of that education was in the local schools, but most importantly, it came from his mother and grandparents, and from the local musicians. One of his most influential learning experiences was gathering at the "Resolanas," the sunny side of a house, to play music. Several musicians of all ages would gather there to practice and also to share music and songs.

Dr. Vigil began his career as a professor at Northern New Mexico College in 1980, and retired from that institution in 2004. He completed a doctorate in Ethnomusicology in 1988. That same year, he became the Chairperson of the Fine Arts Department, a position he held for ten years. Dr. Vigil has been honored as a Living Treasure and has received the Governor's Award and the New Mexico Endowment for the Humanities Award. He has been nominated three times for the National Heritage Award for outstanding work in maintaining and preserving traditional folk music. His son, Cipriano Pablo Vigil, and daughter, Felicita Vigil Piñón, have been performing with him in concerts for about 25 years; recently, his granddaughter Marisol Vigil (14 years old), grandson Mitzael Piñón (8 years old), and youngest grandson Alonzo Vigil (3 years old) have also been performing in the group.

About Lincoln Historic Site:

Lincoln Historic Site is unique in that it manages most of the historical buildings in the community of Lincoln. This most widely visited state monument in New Mexico is part of a community frozen in time—the 1870's and 1880's. Through a gift from the Hubbard Family Trust, the historic site now includes 17 structures and outbuildings, 4 of which are open year round and 2 more seasonally as museums. Most of the buildings in the community are representative of the Territorial Style of adobe architecture in the American Southwest.

Lincoln is a town made famous by one of the most violent periods in New Mexico history. Today's visitors can see the Old Lincoln County Courthouse with museum exhibits that recount the details of the Lincoln County War and the historic use of the "House" as store, residence, Masonic Lodge, courthouse, and jail. Walk in the footsteps of Billy the Kid, Pat Garrett, and other famous and infamous characters of the Wild West. Trace the events of 1878 through the Courthouse and the Tunstall Store, with their preserved 19th-century atmosphere.
