Sourdough Slim, a comical accordion-playing yodeling cowhand will perform at the Blue Goose Fruit Shed in Loomis this Saturday, April 19. Courtesy to the Loomis News Sourdough Slim brings his one-man Western extravaganza to the stage of the Blue Goose Fruit Shed in Loomis at 7 p.m. this Saturday, April 19. Tickets for the Sourdough Slim show are $20 per person. They can be purchased at Blue Goose Produce or Foothill Feed & Gifts. At the show, presented by Cowpoke Productions as a fundraiser for the shed renovation project, the audience will experience Sourdough’s infectious world where vaudevillian camp and cowboy lore intermingle. The cowboy entertainer’s extensive repertoire includes accordion, guitar, harmonica and ukulele playing, jig dancing, lariat twirling, comedy and singing of classic western songs. Born Rick Crowder in Hollywood, Sourdough spent much of his childhood on a family cattle ranch in the Sierra foothills. But as he explains, “My true calling as a cowboy was not on the range but rather, on the stage.” Sharing the Blue Goose stage will be John Kintz, a singing cowboy with a little ranch in Loomis. Kintz has been a regular at the Cowpoke Fall Gathering of Cowboy Poetry and Music, which will take place this year on Nov. 7 and 8 at the Blue Goose in Loomis. – Staff Report
