Linda Nadon, Cowboy Poet, Singer and Musician
Meadow Lake, SK
Linda and her husband, whom she refers to as “My Larry”, own and operate the N7 Ranch, a commercial cow-calf operation, located near Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan. Her poems are the “Real Deal” as they reflect her experiences on the Ranch including, perhaps, a humorous twist or a tiny bit of embellishment. The critters and calamities that come with day to day life on the Ranch provide a never ending supply of poetry material.
Linda is a Veterinarian Technician and has a deep love for animals and for Nature. She is passionate about horses and does much of the ranch work on horseback with the help of her cattle dog “Tippie”. Linda and Larry have two grown children. Lacey and her husband, Jared Thiessen, reside in Saskatoon. Landon now lives on the Nadon homestead and is providing some much needed help on the Ranch.
Linda placed second in the 2017 Columbia River Cowboy Poet Idol Contest in Kennewick, WA. She has many poems published on cowboypoetry.com and one of her poems, “A Quarter of a Century”, was published in the 2016 fall edition of the Western Way Magazine.
Linda has performed at many local functions and a number of Gatherings including the Maple Creek Mustering, and the Willow Creek Cowboy Gathering in Stavely, AB. She has also performed at “Open Mic” at the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, NV a number of times. She has been hired to be the Emcee/Entertainer for an August 2018 trail ride outfitted by The Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies. She will also be performing at the Kamloops 2019 Cowboy Gathering in March.
Linda comes from a family of very talented musicians, she sings and plays guitar and began performing at a very young age. She is certainly no stranger to the stage. She has been writing poetry for over 25 years and has found her niche in Cowboy Poetry. Her debut CD “North of 54” was released in September 2015. She is currently working on her second book of poetry.
