About the poet

Kopelke, the Cowboy of Cumberland, started out singing around campfires on both sides of the Cascade Mountains. He moved on to guest ranches and county fairs. Senior centers and biker bars have enjoyed his cowboy music, original poetry, goofy humor and really big hats.

Lynn’s thriving ragwort farm and cat ranch lies two miles south of Cumberland, Wash. Stop on by.
