Championship cowboy singers and yodelers KG and The Ranger perform in concert at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 19, at the Ross Aragon Community Center.
Cowboy heroes and the Old West come to life when KG and The Ranger take the stage.
“They sing with charm and style, they yodel spectacularly, choose great material with unerring taste. Their growing and continuing success is well deserved,” says Ranger Doug of the legendary group Riders In The Sky.
The spirit of the music and the “cowboy way” is a passion for KG and The Ranger — and you can saddle up your imagination and take a ride with them through the Old West when this husband and wife team from Madison, Wisc., (Karen Gogolick and Rick Roltgen), present a delightful concert of Western entertainment for all ages. It’s going to happen right here — in the last bastion of the Old West!
KG and The Ranger’s smooth harmony singing and yodeling (they yodel in harmony!) harkens back to the Sons Of The Pioneers, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and other cowboy stars of the silver screen. They keep the audience entranced with interesting bits of history about cowboy songs. Ranger Rick twirls his lariat in a fascinating display of trick rope spinning. The duo has recorded five CDs. KG and The Ranger has been named three times, as Harmony Yodeling Champions by the Western Music Association. They have received numerous awards for their harmony singing and showmanship.
Cowboys and cowgirls have always held a special place in the hearts and imagination of Americans. Music from the early cowboy movies resonates with audiences of all ages. Join us when cowboy heroes and the Old West come back to life, when a cowgirl and cowboy from Wisconsin take the stage in Pagosa.
