CLYDE - Riders In The Sky, America's favorite cowboys, are coming to the Clyde High School Auditorium. Communities for the Arts will host this concert at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 13.
As soon as the concert begins, be prepared to hear Riders famous trademark greeting, "mighty fine and a great big Western 'Howdy' all of you buckaroos and buckarettes."
The humorous aspect of the Riders, of course, is inherent in their identities: Guitarist Ranger Doug sings lead and baritone vocals; Upright "bunkhouse" bassist Too Slim is a comic genius; Woody Paul is the "King of the Cowboy Fiddlers" and accordionist Joey is the "CowPolka King."
Riders In The Sky are truly exceptional. By definition, empirical data, and critical acclaim, they stand "hats and shoulders" above the rest of the purveyors of C & W "Comedy & Western!" For 30 years Riders In The Sky have been keepers of the flame passed on by the Sons of the Pioneers, Gene Autry and Roy Rogers, reviving and revitalizing the genre.
All seats for this concert are reserved and are $20 per person. Tickets are available at the Clyde-Green Springs board of education office at 106 S. Main St. in Clyde. The board phone number is (419) 547-0588.
