In what has become a June tradition, Sourdough Slim returns June 20 to Pioneer Hall in Wheatland with his songs, jigs, yodeling and hearty laugh generating humor. These annual events are enjoyed by folks of all ages.
Spokesman Martin Heatlie emphasized admission for the show is free, but donations are welcomed. He said: "We want everybody to be able to enjoy the event."
In the past, donations have been used to help maintain the 100+ year old historic Pioneer Hall. But this year’s donations will go towards helping Paradise.to recover from last year’s devastating fire.
The show starts at 7 PM Thursday at Pioneer Hall, which is located at 4th and B Streets in Wheatland. A pre-show chili dinner starting at 6 PM will be available at the Hall for $5.
Thursday night's performance also includes special guests Harmonica Hank and Mother Lode Mandy of Marysville. Free ice cream, lemonade, etc., will be available during the intermission. This will be an evening of delightful entertainment suitable for all ages.
Sourdough Slim, a Northern California resident, has appeared with his accordion, harmonica, guitar, and vocal gymnastics at many county and state fairs. He has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Elko Nevada National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, and many other locations across the US and abroad.
