Description: The Sparks Museum’s event series Celebrating 150 years of Nevada History and Heritage continues this summer with a special performance by Sourdough Slim & Robert Armstrong on July 11th, 2014 at 7 p.m. The talented and humorous duo will celebrate Nevada’s Sesquicentennial birthday with songs and tales from Nevada. The history and songs of the Pioneer Days and 150 years ago in Nevada are intertwined with hot pickin’, old time harmony singing, stratospheric yodeling and the ethereal lilt of the musical saw. The passion and enthusiasm of the hilariously entertaining vaudevillian duo promise an evening filled with music, poetry, history and fun! Sourdough Slim’s performances range from the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering to The Lincoln Center’s Roots of American Music Festival and the Carnegie Hall Folk Festival. His fast-paced stage show and truly astounding yippie-ti-yi style won him the Academy of Western Artists 2001 Will Rogers Award for “Yodeler of the Year” and 2009, 2010 and 2011 nomination for “Entertainer of the Year” from the Western Music Association. For 29 years the Sparks Museum has been funded almost exclusively by donations and memberships. The performance on July 11th by Sourdough Slim & Robert Armstrong is a fundraising event. Tickets are $15 per person and $12 for Museum Members. Reservations are suggested but not required. Museum doors open at 6 pm and the show starts at 7pm.
