Ghost Rider in the Sky

Western films and tv shows were one of the most popular entertainment genres from the 1930s-1950s, and music from westerns were inspired directly from the campfire music of the time.

In the late 1940s, a National Park Service ranger, songwriter, and Hollywood consultant, Stan Jones, sang Ghost Riders in the Sky to Hollywood location scouts and it soon became Jones’ most famous song.

If you enjoyed our Folk Songs Around the Campfire program at Gallant Farm, (or even if you’ve never been) you’ll enjoy listening to our latest vlog (video blog) here from farm manager Gabe Ross and our seasonal farm educator Orion Wright.
