We just received word that David Horgan, founding member of the Big Sky Mudflaps, will be receiving this year’s “Individual Artist” award from the Missoula Cultural Committee.

David is an original member of the Big Sky Mudflaps, the Bitterroot’s most famous band. They started in 1975, playing at, among other places, Haigh’s Bar in Hamilton. The band has had members come and go, but David, Beth Lo and Steve and Maureen Powell have been the main core of the band for over 35 years.

They’ve maintained their quality sound that took them to the Newport Jazz Festival, with two appearances on national TV on the “Today” show in the 80s. And, they have graced the stage of “Prairie Home Companion.” CD’s include ARMCHAIR CABARET, SENSIBLE SHOES, SHAKE, RATTLE, & ROLL, COLD DUCK TIME, and ARMCHAIR CABARET LIVE, all available at

David, guitarist, is singer-songwriter and has also created memories with groups like Salsa Loca and the Ed Norton Big Band.

The award is part of the MCC Arts Awards Luncheon Thursday, March 29, at the Doubletree Hotel from 11:30am to 1pm. Also honored that day will be art teacher Carla Getz, Greg Johnson and Dr Herbert Swick. For more information, check the MCC website.

The MCC’s Individual Artist award is presented to “someone who has shown exceptional achievement in their chosen craft.”
Let’s see. Yeah, that would be David Horgan.
