About the event

Jill Riley was born into the fourth generation of a large Texas cattle ranching family with the ironic last name of Cluck. In a twelve song story album, she tells their important story spanning four generations. Her great grandparents and their children survived both the Dirty Thirties, and the Great Depression out on the High Plains. Jill grew up observing the fitting debates and resulting divisions among the cattlemen of the second and third generations. Her homespun film featuring the stories and songs of this album won Anthem Film Festival 2020 for Best Original Score. The story shares the lessons Jill has learned through digging into the rich soil of her family heritage, how important family is, and her personal conclusion, "What divides a family divides a nation."
