Sourdough Slim with Robert Armstrong

A marvel of musical ingenuity, showman extraordinaire Sourdough Slim and string instrument wizard Robert Armstrong joyously rekindle the country blues, western classics, vintage jazz and string band repertoire of pre-WWII America. A fast-paced performance of music and humor that showcases their seasoned gift for connecting with audiences. 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. 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 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 Prairie Home Companion, these modern day vaudevillians capture a sound and moment in time that consistently delights fun loving music fans of all walks of life.
Ruby-Hollow-Band

Ruby Hollow Band
www.rubyhollowband.com

Covers, original and traditional songs; ballads, new grass, polkas, Irish and South American/ Spanish tunes, incredible 4-part harmonies, and much more. Their repertoire keeps growing from our varied musical passions… and they do it all with flair and lots of fun!

Ruby Hollow is nothing short of a “phoenix rising” band, rumbling and rising from the wonderfully, musically eclectic dust of the 1980′s “Willowgreen” (David Cowan, Jo Chavez, Alice Peake) to a smashing hot, new configuration (with the addition of David Bilinski) of even more cool instrumentation and incredibly beautiful, intricately woven 4-part harmonies… all in the package of Hot Pogo Folk Music!

What is Hot Pogo Folk Music, you may well ask? Think of a child’s pogo stick hopping and bopping around from place to place, staying put long enough for the balance and fun, and then moving on to another adventure… all in compelling music and song!

The Hot Pogo Folk instruments we use (with constant additions!) are: guitars (including a 7 string), dobro, mandolin, electric bass, 2 accordions, banjo, lap steel, harmonica, South American keynas and panpipes, charrango, penny whistles, flute, bodhran; hammered dulcimer, lap dulcimers, kanun, and keyboard for tailored special performances, drums and various percussive instruments.

Fun things to do in area

Friday, May 6th, 2011

Black Mountain Lookout in the Plumas National Forest is announcing the Grand Opening of the Black Mountain Lookout recreation rental on May 26th, 2011. The lookout is situated in the eastern edge of the Beckwourth Ranger District, 10 miles from Hey. 395 near Milford, Ca. The lookout offers striking views of Honey Lake to the north and Last Chance Creek to the south. This would be a great year to see Honey Lake, it rarely is any fuller. Many years you can drive by and see only a dry lake bed. The fee is sixty dollars per night, accommodating us to eight visitors. For further information call Beckwourth Ranger District at 530-836-2575. Be part of history. A nice way out it to drive over hill to Antelope Lake, then down to Taylorsville and then come see us at the St. Bernard Lodge. Even if you don’t want to spend the night we can fix you a great lunch or dinner, just call ahead and let us know you are coming. 0
