Grammy winners to perform Thursday in Craig
Riders in the Sky slated for Craig Concert Association’s season finale
Western music legends, Riders in the Sky, will perform the Craig Concert Association’s 2009-10 season finale at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Moffat County High School auditorium, 900 Finley Lane.
Tickets cost $25 for adults, or $10 for students. Admission Thursday is free with a $35 purchase of a 2010-11 season membership.
A family deal is also available for two adults with any number of children for $80.
Riders in the Sky performed live for the first time in 1977, and has been an entertaining road act ever since.
The group has maintained its original lineup for more than 30 years, performing easy Western ballads and upbeat country swing around the world. The band has also written songs for feature films, including the animated movie, “Toy Story 2.”
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
The group won Grammy Awards in 2001 and 2003 for “Best Musical Album for Children,” with albums based on “Toy Story 2” and “Monsters, Inc.”
With Riders’ theatrical humor and colorful cowboy characters, Thursday’s performance will be a delight for the whole family, Concert Association board member Julie Dempster said.
“It’s not just the music but the whole presentation, the whole package,” Dempster said. “They have their own character names and this whole shtick.
“I’m looking forward to bringing my kids.”
