American WestFest 2018 Line-Up Announced
Michael Martin Murphey's American Westfest :: Red River, NM
JUST ANNOUNCED: Michael Martin Murphey’s American WestFest returns to Red River, New Mexico, JULY 4th-8th, 2018!
Murphey’s wildly popular festival concept has been presented multiple times in many states of the U.S. since 1986, helping to earn Murphey a place in the Western Music Hall of Fame, National Cowboy Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame’s 2018 main exhibit, “Outlaws and Armadillos”. Westfest has sparked the careers of hundreds of American Western performing artists and fine artists. The Hall of Great Westerners Awardee, Red Steagall, called Murphey's Westfest “the festival by which all other Western festivals will be measured in the future."
Michael Martin Murphey, who wrote and sang the enduring hit Western song, “Wildfire”, introduced Westfest to the world in front of an audience of 40 million on the Tonight Show in 1986, and it was soon hailed as the “the best festival in the USA” by Country Music Magazine, and praised by Cowboys and Indians Magazine, True West Magazine, American Cowboy Magazine, USA Today, the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times and many others.

There are several reasons that Michael Martin Murphey likes to return to Red River as often as possible.
“Red River is my spiritual home,” said Murphey. “It’s absolutely stunning here. I went there several times when I was still in high school. I was hooked on thesheer beauty of the area then and decided that it would always be a part of my life.”
For the SIXTH consecutive year, the iconic singer - songwriter of such classic hits as “Wildfire,” “Carolina In The Pines,” “Geronimo’s Cadillac” and more, Michael Martin Murphey will return to Red River, NM to perform at his Rocking 3M Amphitheater from late June through late August.
