Yeow! Back in the Saddle Again

“A Winter Night’s Yeow,” a much loved multi-band music and comedy show
that toured the Mother Lode and Central Valley for over a decade, makes
its raucous return to Columbia's Fallon House Theatre for one special show
on Saturday night, February 22.

Sourdough Slim, a singing, yodeling cowboy from Paradise and a “Yeow”
headliner since its inception, said, “I couldn't be more excited about
this show!”  The evening will be a very special tribute to Ron DeLacy, the
irreverent and very funny songwriter and performer who passed away in July
of last year and who was for many years the producer of the “Yeow” tours,
not to mention the life of the party.

“Everyone who knew Ron knows that he wanted the show to go on – and the
laughter and the jokes and the music and the fun,” said a close friend at
a recent memorial gathering.  So the show will go on, with an extra large
helping of laughter and love, for one night only on February 22 at
Columbia's Fallon House Theatre.

Advance tickets are $20, general admission, or $25 on the day of the show
if there are tickets left. Advance tickets are available at the Jack
Douglass Saloon in Columbia, from Tradewinds consignment in Sonora at 63 S
Washington, tel: (209) 588-8810, and by telephone at (209) 853-2128.

Slim, who has played his music from California to Carnegie Hall, teams up
for “Yeow” with the La Grange folk trio Faux Renwah (“Cactus” Bob Cole,
Chris “Prairie Flower” Stevenson and Chris's son, Michael P. Kennedy) and
the comic duo “Old Soles”, an acoustic fiddle and banjo pairing made up of
clog-dancing “Yeow” veteran Masha Goodman Crawford and her witty,
multi-talented husband Geff Crawford.  Dave Cavanagh, who for years headed
up the show with DeLacy in the duo “Doodoo Wah”, will be joining the cast
as their very special guest for this evening of musical mayhem.

The songs and the singers change a little from year to year, but the
fast-pace format remains: The three main bands play short sets throughout
the show, often with some surprises thrown in, and at the end, the whole
cast gets together for the closing “Yeow” set.

“Nobody in the audience goes home without a smile on their face,” said
Slim, “and neither do we.”
