ABOUT THE ARTIST
A performance by Sourdough Slim, a.k.a. Rick Crowder, is a hoot to say the least. This savvy performer has a gift for transporting audiences to a whimsical world where vaudevillian camp intermingles with cowboy lore, producing grins galore. Since 1988, he has gained national recognition performing at events across the country including; the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center in New York. His fast-paced stage show combines cowboy singing, award-winning yodeling, timeless humor, accompaniment on accordion, guitar, ukulele, and harmonica, and a keen knowledge of traditional western repertoire. Sourdough Slim hails from California’s gold country.
