Carl Thurlo


Carl's poetry is described as having a lyrical quality. And it requires emotion and feeling to project in recitations. Everyone's ear is turned towards one cowboy ( Carl Thurlo ) who is telling a story that draws everyone in...




Carl hails from Kingston Oklahoma, a small town close to the Oklahoma, Texas border. But during his years of entertaining, Carl has crossed many borders including the vast ocean. he has appeared on country and western programs across the nation and overseas. He has recorded poems and songs on numerous labels and is heard on various raido programs around the world.

Attention from the National Cowboy Poetry Society came after Carl had recorded "Old Blaze" and "The Cowboy and The Lord" with autumn Records out of Nashville.

He plays the harmonica with The Shadow Mountain Band as well as other bands

Carl has recorded several poems and songs and has a book of his works called "Ramblin"s of The Ranch Hand." He has an album of cowboy poems available, also a single featuring "Santa and the Cowboy."

Carl is described as a cowboy of many talents including those of songwriter, poet and entertainer. With his special blend of poetry and music, Carl transports listeners back in time to the day of the cowboy. He made his first record, "Truck Driver's Hell," in 1960.

Just like his poems, Carl's record numbers have grown and he has performed all across the United States and overseas. several of his songs have been recorded by artists including Janice Duffy, Christy McEntire, Dale Lay, and Bobby G. Rice "You Lay So Easy On My Mind"

Carl says reciting his poetry is one of his favorite activities. When he recites, guitarist Keiller Park provides background music with a guitar.

Now Imagine yourself sitting by a campfire softly crackling and lulling harmonica music floating in the air. And every ear is turned towards one cowboy who is telling a story that draws everyone in...

Thats the way some describe the transformation that takes place when Carl Thurlo shares his songs and poems.
