September 2016 - Turn it Up: Riders in the Sky
The Lensic proudly presents America’s favorite cowboy crooners, Riders in the Sky, on September 14, 2016, in a special tribute to iconic Western movie, music, and TV star Roy Rogers, the undisputed “King of the Cowboys.”
Keepers of the flame passed on by Gene Autry and Roy Rogers, Riders in the Sky have been reviving and revitalizing Western music for more than 36 years. While remaining true to the integrity of the genre, they’ve become modern-day icons by branding it with their own wacky humor and way-out Western wit. The group (with members Ranger Doug, Too Slim, Woody Paul, and Joey) has been featured at the Grand Ole Opry, on National Public Radio, and on stages across America, always encouraging buckaroos and buckarettes to live life “The Cowboy Way!” Younger audiences recognize them from the hits they penned and recorded for Pixar Animation’s Toy Story 2 and Monsters Inc.
The show features family-friendly favorites from Roy’s long career, including, “Don’t Fence Me In,” “Pecos Bill,” “Happy Trails,” and more, all wrapped up in the Riders’ two-time-Grammy-winning, high yodeling style. This multimedia performance begins at 7:30pm, and tickets start at $20 (TicketsSantaFe.org).
