// a performance with storytelling and music

This is the true story of two Texans.

One Texan falls in love with a cowgirl who rides on the back of a giant catfish. His name is Pecos Bill. He was raised by coyotes, used a rattlesnake as a lasso and grew up to be the greatest cowboy of all time.

The other Texan once passed out from exhaustion on a 3-mile hike. His name is Greg.

This is where Bill and Greg meet, merge and swap stories.

The Many Apologies of Pecos Bill is a show about being far away from home. Using true storytelling and live music by Mat Martin, Greg will attempt to reach backward across an ocean.
