Singer-songwriter Chuck Pyle is known as the Zen Cowboy, and it’s easy to see why.
Google his name, visit his Web site or MySpace, and take in the easygoing charm of a man who’s been performing for more than 40 years.
There’s not a whole lot of “cowboy” in Pyle’s act, unless you count the wide-brimmed hat atop his head or the songs he’s penned for country stars such as Chris LeDoux and Jerry Jeff Walker.
Really, the long-time Coloradan’s music is more akin to David Wilcox, mixing folk aesthetic with pop melodies, played to perfection. Pyle’s stop at the Harmony House Concert Series in Sisters will be an ideal spot to catch an intimate concert by the Sisters Folk Festival veteran.
Chuck Pyle ; 7 p.m. Saturday, doors open 6:30 p.m.; $10 suggested donation; 17478 Forked Horn Road, Sisters; 541-548-2209 for directions and information.
