Riders in the Sky will perform at USD Sept. 15
The National Music Museum at The University of South Dakota in Vermillion will present Riders in the Sky, America's Grammy Award-winning western music and comedy group, in Slagle Auditorium, next to the National Music Museum on the USD campus, Saturday, Sept. 15, at 7:30 p.m.

Flying out of Nashville, where they regularly appear at the Grand Ole Opry, Ranger Doug, Woody Paul, Too Slim, and Joey the CowPolkaKing are highly educated men who prepared for other careers, but instead have become the stuff of legend, with fun-filled performances rich in the American music tradition of the beloved cowboy singers Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, and Sons of the Pioneers.

Spending most of the year on the road, they also tour regularly in Europe, as well as on Caribbean and Pacific Ocean cruise ships, playing guitar, fiddle, bass, and accordion, cracking jokes, and singing songs like Back in the Saddle Again, Tumbling Tumble Weeds, and Rawhide!

Advance tickets are $25 and are on sale at the National Music Museum or by calling 605-677-5909. Tickets at the door will be $40. Slagle Auditorium is handicapped accessible.
