Accordion Cowboy Chris Rybak—the most popular such entertainer in the Lone Star State—will grace the Brush Country Music Jamboree’s Feb. 4 reunion program, officials said. The event will be free to the public.

Known for his unique mix of country, polka, cajun, folk, gospel and classical music, Rybak performs both nationally and internationally.

He is known to play an average of 100 public shows a year and 40 or so private shows for birthdays, anniversaries and reunions, weddings and other special occasions.

The jamboree is an official function of George West’s centennial celebration and is sponsored by the city of George West and the George West Chamber of Commerce. A concession stand will be available, according to a news release.

The event takes place starting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 4, at the Dobie West Performing Arts Theater downtown, across from the courthouse, officials said.

Other music notables such as Allison Crowson and Linda Wientjes will be on hand to perform.

Highlights of the reunion program also will include:

Ricky Turpin, who will play twin fiddles with Joe Nixon the entire show.

• Yodeling champion Ken Brothers.

• Fiddler and singer Rocky King.

• The Rocky Roberts Family, who will sing the gospel portion of the show.
