Oldfield Art Show Entertainment, Rockin' HW

Rocking’ HW ~ Alan Halvorson & Ramon Selby, Al Troupe

These entertainers have a common interest in preserving the Cowboy tradition through music. They sing of the Old West and of the modern day Cowboy. They have shared their songs with many folks across the country in numerous venues. 

Greg Parke

Greg Parke gives the term “one man band” a whole new meaning. Using custom built acoustic and electric MIDI guitars, sound modules and loopers, he is able to create an amazingly full sound that seems more like a whole stage full of musicians rather than just one person, all done in real time, with no pre-recorded backing tracks. Combine that with his rich, captivating voice, a very spontaneous and entertaining sense of humor, and you are guaranteed a show that you won’t soon forget!

Gina Wilhelm & Puppets on the Range

Gina Wilhelm is the granddaughter of a cowboy from Wink, Texas. Her Great Uncle Lou Franco and his band Happy Valley Cowboys” was well known throughout Oregon, and her parents operated a puppet theater in Bangkok.

She is a professional puppeteer, singer, actor, and improviser. She was a regular with the respected Thistle Theatre in Seattle for 10 years. She has performed at the National Puppetry Festival (yes, there is one, and it’s festive!) and played several engagements at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, the country’s largest organization dedicated to the art of puppetry. She was also a puppeteer for the live puppet host segments at the DOTA (Defense of the Ancients video game) International competition in 2016, which had an estimated audience of 30 million. She is a member of Puppeteers of America. She sings with Carillon Chamber Choir and has performed with Silver Bells Carolers.  She also has an extensive musical theatre resume, performing Gilbert & Sullivan to Mel Brooks and everyone in between. She is especially proud of her lead turn as Kate Monster in “Avenue Q,” everyone’s favorite puppet musical.
