02/24/2019 - Cattle in the Sierra Video Presentation
Grazing cattle in the high country is a subject of controversy. Historic traditions and public use of forest
resources must be balanced with water quality, meadow impacts, and the ringing of cowbells. A grant
from California Humanities allowed historian Judith Marvin and Julia Costello to research this topic and a
museum presentation---and this short film—are a result of their study. With help from the US Forest
Service, Central Sierra Environmental Resource Center, and the Rasmussen, Dell’Orto, and Whittle
ranching families, both history and modern practices are addressed. All are welcome to the presentation
and reception.

Presented by the Murphys Old Timers Museum, this project was made possible with support from
California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. visit

08/04/2019 - Hank Williams Jr with Moonshine Bandits at Ironstone Amphitheatre Sunday, August 4, 2019
Murphys, CA...Thrilled to have our first show announcement of the year be the legendary Hank Williams Jr! Hank Williams Jr.'s extremely impressive resume has spawned 70 million albums sold worldwide, six PLATINUM albums, 20 GOLD albums, 13 No. 1 albums and 10 No. 1 singles. Marking 52 years since his first album in 1964, Hank Jr. released IT’S ABOUT TIME (Nash Icon Records) on January 15. In addition to the history making “Are You Ready for the Country,” the project includes new tunes such as “Dress Like an Icon,” “Just Call Me Hank,” “It’s About Time,” and “The Party’s On” as well as re-recorded versions of classics “Mental Revenge” and “Born to Boogie” with Brantley Gilbert, Justin Moore and Brad Paisley on guitar. IT’S ABOUT TIME is Hank's 37th album in his five decade career. He continues to add accolades to an extremely impressive resume, which includes ACM Entertainer of the Year, CMA Entertainer of the Year and BMI Icon in addition to winning a GRAMMY and being inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. As a touring artist, Hank was a pioneer in bringing arena rock production values to country music, and he remains one of the most consistent ticket sellers in music, period, as generation after generation gets turned on to one of the most dynamic live performers ever to take the stage.



We are also thrilled to welcome to Ironstone for the first time, from right here in Northern California, Moonshine Bandits! Long before people figured out country and rap had a lot in common, the Moonshine Bandits released their genre-blending album, “Whiskey & Women,” and took the world of outlaw music by storm. The group’s blue-collar work ethic and unwavering persistence has led to over 60 million views on the ShinerTV YouTube channel – collectively over 80 million views on YouTube – while their video for “My Kind of Country” peaked at #1 on CMT Pure. The Bandits also charted Billboard simultaneously with a top 10 in Rap and a top 20 in Country Music and have been Recognized by Rolling Stone Magazine, CMT, Youtube Honors, MTV, AOL THE BOOT, YAHOO, and the list goes on. Connecting with fans on all levels, Moonshine Bandits have built a solid “Shiner Nation” of loyal fans, started their own 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization known as Operation Packing Company, Inc. that specializes in sending supplies to our Troops Overseas, Beef Jerky and legal Moonshine. The Bandits earned a 2018 Telly Award for their “Take This Job” music video featuring David Allan Coe.

Every year during February we join forces with Soroptimist International of Calaveras County to provide Free Complete Cholesterol testing for local women. We are excited to see others also joining the effort to raise awareness about heart health in Calaveras County – like the ‘Love Your Heart’ wellness event planned on Feb. 16th at the Copperopolis Branch Library.” (See related story for details.)

“This outreach has had such an impact on the women in Calaveras County, noted Take Women to Heath (TWTH) chairperson and treasurer Billie Westernoff, “Soroptimist International of Calaveras County is very excited and humbled by the fact that our Sister Club in Pesaro Italy has asked us to mentor them so that they can replicate TWTH with a similar program, understanding the fact that women's health issues are worldwide.”

positive reaction indicating the community is eager to learn more about the timely topics covered at these
events. By taking advantage of ‘A Plan 4 Me,’ you have access to information that can be key to
preventing and identifying health issues, as well as arming you with knowledge to better address
everyday situations.”
