Raucous comedy makes everyone smile

“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, February 22 at 8 p.m.

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.”

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 its 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.

The evening will be a special tribute to Ron DeLacy, the irreverant and very funny songwriter and performer who passed away in July 2013 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.

Advance tickets are $20 for general admission or $25 on the day of the show if there are tickets left. Advance tickets will be available from the Jack Douglass Saloon in Columbia; Tradewinds consignment in Sonora, 209-588-8810; the Mountain Bookshop in Sonora; and from Chris Stevenson at 209-853-2128.

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