Wyoming Native to Perform at UW
March 3, 2009 — Jalan Crossland, a Wyoming-born country music sensation, will play a free concert in the University of Wyoming Union ballroom at 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 11.
Crossland began his career with the electric guitar, but he soon outgrew his metal phase and returned to his country roots. While becoming a solo artist, he spent a lot of time practicing at home in Tensleep and in 1997 won second place in the Winfield National Guitar Fingerpicking competition in Winfield, Kan.
Crossland has toured both solo and with a band for the past 10 years. He and his band have released three CDs to date, "Poorboy Shanty," "Moonshiner" and "Trailer Park Fire and Other Tragedies." They have been a Rocky Mountain regional favorite since forming in late 2005.

Jalan Crossland will perform Wednesday, March 11, at 8 p.m. in the Wyoming Union ballroom.
