Folk Thursday: Emma Jane Pendleton

This isn’t a YouTube video, so I can’t embed the link, but click here to see a Soundslides show featuring Emma Jane Pendleton performing “I Want to Be a Cowboy’s Sweetheart,” the song that won her first place in the Patsy Montana National Yodeling Championship.

Emma Jane’s achievement earned her some ink in the Tulsa World yesterday; you can read the story here. Her little sister, Marina, took second place in the contest.

The girls are also accomplished fiddlers who perform frequently in the Tulsa area. Here’s a video of them performing at the National Fiddler Hall of Fame gala earlier this spring:

If you’re in the area and want to catch one of their shows, you can find a list of upcoming performances here.

I happen to know that in addition to being talented musicians, the Pendleton girls are very bright, very funny, and very helpful — just the sort of kids you’d want to see in the spotlight.

At least one of them has excellent taste in blogs, too. 😉
