Music At the Roman
The Roman theater is dedicated to bring the best Singer Songwriters to our stage. In the past the likes of Tony Lane, Jeff Plankenhorn, Even Stevens, Hugh Prestwood, Helen Darling, Kostas, JALAN Crossland, Sean Devine, Drew McManus, Anthony Smith, Wynn Varble, Brett Jones, Sunny Sweeney and James Dean Hicks have all graced our stage. Here are a few photo’s from past shows and a list of upcoming events.
Jalan Crossland and Sean Devine Fall Tour 2018
Jalan Crossland is an unlikely star. Put John Hartford and Tom Waits in the same body, grow that body up in tiny Ten Sleep, WY (pop. 260), and you get Jalan Crossland. Both a deft and sophisticated songwriter and a ripping fast picker of guitar and banjo, Jalan, his porch board, harmonica, and big-hearted wit are a show to be reckoned with. “He casts a sardonic but affectionate eye on the roughhewn lives of Western people. Crossland’s ‘Big Horn Mountain Blues’ is so popular in Wyoming that it is practically the official state song.” (Michael Segell- New York Times).
Livingston, MT singer-songwriter Sean Devine opens the show with his deep, insightful lyrics and acoustic guitar style reminiscent of Guy Clark and Bob Dylan.

At fifteen, Dead Horses frontwoman Sarah Vos’ world turned upside down. Raised in a strict, fundamentalist home, Vos lost everything when she and her family were expelled from the rural Wisconsin church where her father had long served as pastor. What happened next is the story of Dead Horses’ stunning new album, ‘My Mother the Moon,’ a record full of trauma and triumph, despair and hope, pain and resilience.
Blending elements of traditional roots with contemporary indie folk, the album is both familiar and unexpected, unflinchingly honest in its portrayal of modern American life, yet optimistic in its unshakable faith in brighter days to come. Earthy and organic, Vos’ songs often reveal themselves to be exercises in empathy and outreach; she writes not only to find meaning in the struggles she’s endured, but also to embrace kindred souls on their own personal journeys of self-discovery.
‘My Mother the Moon’ is Dead Horses’ third album, which NPR Music has described as “evocative, empathetic storytelling” and Rolling Stone has called “a beautifully uncluttered collection of songs,” earning Dead Horses a spot in the latter’s “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know in 2018” list. No Depression relates Vos’ “aching, haunting vocals and tales of working-class men and women” to “lullabies sung to the lonely and lost”, and has already cited the album as one of the “Best Roots Albums of 2018 (So Far)”.
