Sourdough Slim & Robert Armstrong have had the pleasure of sharing their lively roots music with audiences at Carnegie Hall and The Lincoln Center to concert halls, festivals and fairs around the country. With a repertoire of western classics, country blues, vintage jazz and string band favorites from the 1920's and 30's, they share a passion for America's rich musical heritage and they know how to communicate that feeling to an audience. You'll hear raucous and often heartfelt singing accompanied by a dizzying array of acoustic instruments including accordion, guitar, banjo, ukulele, jug, national steel, musical saw and harmonica. All dished up with a hearty dose of vaudevillian stagecraft making for a delightfully entertaining experience. "Sourdough Slim and Robert Armstrong are flat-out-entertaining fun....with perfect comedic timing and showmanship....outstanding abilities on a variety of instruments, they dazzle audiences. Performances are always fresh and different....something for everyone." says Margo Metegrano of CowboyPoetry.Com. Sacramento Magazine calls their show "A rollicking evening of outrageous humor and song."
Sourdough Slim hails from California's gold country and is the recipient of the Academy Of Western Artist's "Yodeler of the Year" and a four time nominee for the Western Music Association's "Entertainer of the Year." String instrument virtuoso Robert Armstrong is a founding member of the infamous "Cheap Suit Serenaders" and an in demand studio musician who makes his home in Winters, California.
