John May and Heath McAteer are a newly formed acoustic songwriting duo based in Wyoming. Their similar interests in music and songwriting drew them together in the college choir. John and Heath grew up in Casper and have a profound love of the outdoors which can be heard in the music they perform. Songs about the mountains and the human condition, sung by harmonizing voices and guitar duets, illustrate images of two country kids grappling with the best and the worst parts of life. Just two Wyoming boys and two guitars.

Chad Hanson serves as Chair of the Department of Social & Cultural Studies at Casper College. His nonfiction titles include Swimming with Trout and Trout Streams of the Heart. He is also the author of two collections of poems: Patches of Light and This Human Shape. His recent awards include the Meadowhawk Prize in Poetry and a Creative Writing Fellowship from the Wyoming Arts Council, made possible through funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
