"Filling the Gaps at Elko" was recorded at the 2002 Gathering and "Elko On Your Own" was recorded at the 2006 Gathering. Both were drawn from scenes at the Red Lion Casino in Elko, Nevada, and celebrate the small moments you can find in Elko between shows and workshops. 

Kent Stockton and Gail Steiger will both be appearing at the 25th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, January 24-31, 2009.
