For thirty-five years Riders in the Sky have been keepers of the flame passed on by the Sons of the Pioneers, Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. While remaining true to the integrity of Western music, they have themselves become modern-day icons by branding the genre with their own legendary wacky humor and way-out Western wit, and all along encouraging buckaroos and buckarettes to live life ‘The Cowboy Way!’ In addition to being inducted into the Grand Ol’ Opry, and too many halls of fame to mention, they are also the winners of two Grammy awards for music from Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 2 and Monsters, Inc. It comes as no surprise then that Billboard’s, Jim Bessman, counts them as one of the “most significant acts in the history of American music.” The Quebe Sisters (pronounced Kway-bee) are the newest darlings of Western music, performing a refreshing blend of vintage country, bluegrass, jazz & swing standards, and Texas style fiddling.

The Blue Canvas Orchestra perform great country and western music takes us from the mid-60s through the early 80s with music from Opry icons like Willie & Waylon, Dolly & Loretta, Johnny Cash, George Jones, Glen Campbell, Charley Pride and Lynn Anderson. This show again features theBlue Canvas Orchestra with Corey Carlson and special guests Andy Dee, Randy Sabien, Joe Savage, Danielle Diamond and Emily Belanger.

This show will bring you to your feet as you clap and sing along to popular tunes!  So get ready for a foot stompin’, hand clappin’, good time Old Opry style!!
