Jan 22 Blue Mountain Entertainment "Riders in the Sky" Program-
Grammy award-winning Riders in the Sky will perform at the Monticello High School Auditorium at 7:00 p.m. Riders in the Sky are truly exceptional. For more than thirty years they have been keepers of the flame passed on by the Sons of the Pioneers, Gene Autry and Roy Rogers, reviving and revitalizing the genre. And while remaining true to the integrity of Western music, they have themselves become modern-day icons by branding the genre with their own legendary wacky humor and way-out Western wit, and all along encouraging buckaroos and buckarettes to live life "The Cowboy Way!" They stand “hats and shoulders” above other comedy and western performers.They had their own weekly TV show on TNN and CBS. They are the ONLY exclusively Western artists to have won a Grammy - and Riders has won two! Guitarist Ranger Doug, sings lead and baritone vocals; Upright “bunkhouse” bassist Too Slim is easily the sharpest wit in the West. Woody Paul, “King of the Cowboy Fiddlers,” sings lead and tenor vocals. Accordionist Joey, “plays both ends against the middle,” as they say, on his “stomach Steinway”. Riders in the sky is sponsored by Blue Mountain Entertainment, with assistance from Utah Arts and Museums, National Endowment for the Arts, and the Western Arts Federation (WESTAF). Tickets at the door are Family $30, Adult $12, Student $6. BME and Kigalia Fine Arts season memberships will also be honored.
