Hold on to your hats and get ready for a special Rodeo Round-Up Concert featuring Sourdough Slim and the Saddle Pals on Saturday, April 1 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Odd Fellows Hall in downtown La Grange.

Totally retro and immensely entertaining, Sourdough Slim and The Saddle Pals are a hoot to say the least. When yodeling cowboy sensation Sourdough Slim joins forces with the fiddling, wisecracking Cactus Bob and the lovely bass thumping Prairie Flower, magic happens. The chemistry between these purveyors of fine Western music is a real marvel of musical ingenuity.
Sourdough Slim Crowder hails from Paradise, California while Cactus Bob Cole and Prairie Flower, also known as Chris Stevenson, live in the town of La Grange.
Veterans of two of California’s most popular acoustic combos (8th Avenue String Band and Fiddlestix) they came together as a group in 1988 and since then have entertained audiences from The National Cowboy Gathering to The Strawberry Music Festival with their wacky brand of Western entertainment.
The band features three part harmony, fiddle, accordion, guitar, mandolin, banjo, standup bass and a repertoire of catchy cowboy classics and old time music.
The 1881 vintage La Grange Odd Fellows Hall, gathering place of many community activities, is located at 30018 Yosemite Boulevard in downtown La Grange. You can find more information on the web at SourdoughSlim.com.
