About the Event

Sourdough Slim & Robert Armstrong

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.
