Sourdough Slim & Robert Armstrong – Last of the Vaudeville Cowboys

January 19, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$20 - $23

Hold on to your seat and get ready for a rollicking evening of outrageous humor and song. A marvel of musical ingenuity, yodeling cowboy songster Sourdough Slim and string instrument wizard Robert Armstrong joyously rekindle the country blues, vintage jazz, cowboy classics and string band repertoire of pre-WWII America. Whether capturing the haunting refrain of a Jimmie Rodgers blue yodel or swinging out a hot novelty number, everyone gets caught up in the fun these two cut-ups have on stage. A fast-paced performance of music and comedy that showcases this duo’s seasoned gift for connecting with their audiences. All dished up with a hearty dose of vaudevillian stagecraft making for a delightfully entertaining experience. Long time fans will remember them as founding members of two of California’s favorite acoustic combo’s, 8th Avenue String Band and R. Crumb’s Cheap Suit Serenaders. Between them they share a provocative array of period instruments including: flat-top guitar, national steel, baritone and soprano ukulele, musical saw, accordion, six-string banjo and harmonica. Well traveled veterans of stages ranging from Carnegie Hall and The Lincoln Center to The National Cowboy Gathering, Strawberry Music Festival and Prairie Home Companion. These modern day vaudevillians capture a sound and moment in time that consistently delights fun loving music fans everywhere they perform.
