But consider this: The first Santa Clarita Cowboy Poetry & Music Festival, as it was initially known, almost rolled into the Wm. S. Hart High School Auditorium instead back in March 1994.

In the fall of '93, as city of Santa Clarita officials and staff prepared to produce the inaugural festival, Melody Ranch wasn't even in the script.

Then the Jan. 17 Northridge Earthquake struck, and the Hart Auditorium was red-tagged.

How Melody Ranch saved the Cowboy Festival's bacon in ear;y '94 is the topic of this exclusive interview with with Mike Fleming, an Arts & Entertainment supervisor for the city of Santa Clarita and the festival's trail boss for the past decade, and Renaud Veluzat, Melody Ranch's co-owner (with his brother Andre).
