Glenn Ohrlin, 1926-2015
We are sad to learn that the great cowboy poet and singer Glenn Ohrlin of Mtn. View, Arkansas has died.
In the late 1990s, Mr. Ohrlin participated in a tour organized by Julie Youmans, then MFAP folk arts specialist, called “Cowboy Poetry and the Arts of the Frontier” via the former Missouri Performing Traditions project. A featured performer at the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, NV and recipient of the prestigious National Heritage Fellowship, Mr. Ohrlin will be greatly missed by all. R.I.P.
