Sourdough Slim and Robert Armstrong play Western classics, country blues, and string band favorites from 1920's and 30's rural America. You'll hear virtuoso yodeling and masterful yippie-ti-yi-yaying, hilarious off-beat jokes and wisecracks and heartfelt singing, along with tasty accompaniment on accordion, guitar, banjo, ukulele, musical saw, harmonica and national steel. These two modern-day vaudevillians share a delight in America's rich musical heritage and they know how to communicate that feeling to an audience.
Well traveled veterans of stages ranging from Carnegie Hall and The Lincoln Center to The Strawberry Music Festival, The National Cowboy Gathering and Prairie Home Companion, they capture a sound and moment in time that consistently delights fun loving music fans wherever they perform.
