 (Virginia City) – Tom Zachry, retired Dayton schoolteacher, cowboy singer and poet will share songs, poems and stories of old-time Dayton characters – including Rocky Adamson, at the second part of  “Tom’s Fairly Western” Western, folk and original songs and poetry at the next Gold Hill Hotel’s Thursday Night Presentations at 7:30 p.m. June 2, 2016.

Zachry taught at the Dayton Elementary School for about 30 years. The title of his show comes from a comment former Dayton Constable Rocky Adamson made when asked if Zachry was a cowboy; “Tom’s fairly Western.”

He said Adamson was one of his big influences, and performed with him at the former End of the Trail Saloon in Dayton and the former Golden Gate Bar in Silver City. He has been writing and playing music and poetry since he moved to Dayton in 1980.

Zachry’s first show at the Gold Hill Hotel sold out in four days, so tickets should be purchased as soon as possible.

His show consists not only of his own songs and poetry, but also old-time music – some of which dates to the 1800s.

Dinner is from 4-8 p.m.; the presentation begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Great Room of the Gold Hill Hotel.

The Gold Hill Hotel, the oldest hotel in Nevada, and its renowned Crown Point Restaurant, are located at 1540 Main Street, Gold Hill, just one mile south of Virginia City on SR 342.
