Eli Barsi Portrait of a Cowgirl

Eli Barsi, Canadian Western Music singer and songwriter,  recently released “Portrait of a Cowgirl” and it’s a wonderful CD!  The title song paints a perfect portrait of a cowgirl, inspired by her mom’s life!  Eli wrote or co-wrote every song on the album and they all have a wonderful message.  From “Farm Girl” to “Window of the West” you will be entertained and inspired!  Eli is joined by Brett Kissel on “A Real Partner” about the birth of the Calgary Stampede and it was a “team up” with Doris Daley, as was “God Only Know.”  “Big Hat No Cattle” was co-written with Juni Fisher and “Farm Girl” was co-written with Anthony Kelly.
