A marvel of musical ingenuity, yodeling cowboy Sourdough Slim and string instrument wizard Robert Armstrong joyously rekindle the country blues, cowboy classics, and string band repertoire of pre-WWII America. Tonight's fast-paced performance of music and comedy showcases Sourdough and Robert's seasoned gift for connecting with audiences. Whether capturing the haunting refrain of a Jimmie Rodgers blue yodel or swinging out a hot novelty number, the fun these two cut-ups have on stage leads to a contagious good time for everyone in the hall.

Long-time fans will remember the pair as founding members of two of California's favorite acoustic combos.  Sourdough started the 8th Avenue String Band and Robert helped form the Cheap Suit Serenaders. Between them they share a provocative array of period instruments including (but not limited to) flat-top guitar, national steel guitar, 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 Strawberry Music Festival, The National Cowboy Gathering, and Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion, these modern day vaudevillians capture a sound and moment in time that consistently delights fun-loving music fans wherever they perform.
