Sourdough Slim back – with friends

Sourdough Slim (left) returns Saturday to Grass Valley, this time with Faux Renwah and Doodoo Wah, in “A Winter Night’s Yeow.”

Originally planned as a one-night-only performance in Sutter Creek, “A Winter Night’s Yeow” has been presented around the country since 1995.

The three bands will perform musical comedy, balladry, cowboy yodeling and bluegrass starting at 8 p.m.

Sourdough Slim, who has played here with several of his friends during the past several years, will be accompanied by Sacramento’s Blackwood Tom Schmidt (right), the self-described “King of the Cowboy Clarinet.” This year, Slim was named yodeler of the year by the Academy of Western Artists.

Faux Renwah is the latest incarnation of Bob Cole and Chris Stevenson (aka Cactus Bob and Prairie Flower), who have performed frequently with Sourdough Slim. Stevenson’s son, Michael P. Kennedy, now plays with the group.

Doodoo Wah’s repertoire is what singer-songwriter Ron DeLacy calls “politically incorrect folk music,” poking fun at Bill Clinton, George Bush, Florida voters and Osama bin Laden, among others.

“A Winter Night’s Yeow” will be at Center for the Arts, 314 W. Main St.

Admission is $15 in advance and $18 at the door. To reserve tickets, call (209) 536-0367.
