Western singers to perform at PAC


Staff Reports

Western singing group Riders in the Sky will perform at the Performing Arts Center on March 28.

The group has won two grammys for their work in the Toy Story and Monsters Inc. sound tracks.

“History will most certainly link Riders In The Sky to the loveable cowboy, Woody, from the Pixar film Toy Story as they performed ‘Woody’s Round Up’ in the film,” said David Reynolds, Brookings Chamber Music Society vice president.

SDSU students can redeem a free ticket with a student ID from the Info Exchange office at the Union before the concert.

The Agricultural Heritage Museum, at the corner of 11th Street and Medary Avenue, will host a “Meet and Greet the Riders” pre-concert event from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the museum.

Photographs, autographs and a special performance will be part of the earlier museum event.

Riders in the Sky includes Ranger Doug, Idol of American Youth, on arch-top guitar and baritone vocals; Too Slim, A Man Aging like Fine Cheese, on bunkhouse bass, face and tenor; Woody Paul, King of the Cowboy Fiddlers, on fiddle, tenor vocals and rope tricks; and Joey, the CowPolka King, on the stomach Steinway (accordion) and baritone vocals.

Tickets are available at the museum for $35 per single ticket or $60 per couple and include concert tickets. BCMS season ticket holders can attend the pre-concert event for $20.
