Black Hills Cowboy Christmas

LEAD, SD | The popular Ninth Annual Black Hills Cowboy Christmas concerts and a dance return to the Historic Homestake Opera House in December with more than a dozen celebrated regional performers, an added performance and reserved seating.

This year’s Cowboy Christmas concerts are set for 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, as well as a new matinee performance at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 9, added by popular demand due to previous year’s sell-outs that caused organizers to turn people away. All concerts are conducted at the Homestake Opera House, 313 W. Main St., in Lead, and a down-home cowboy music dance will follow Saturday evening’s performance.

This year’s award-winning lineup includes cowboy musician Paul Larson of Rochford; South Dakota fiddler champion Kenny Putnam; singer/songwriter performer Boyd Bristow of Sioux Falls; Black Hills singer/songwriter Jami Lynn; guitarist/singer bassist/singer Chet Murray from Rapid City; cowboy poet/comedian Chuck Larson; The Wilt Brothers Band; vocalist Sarah Carlson of Lead; and Brent Morris, Connie Hubbard, Trinity Seely, Robert Dennis, and Yvonne Hollenbeck.

“This show is about the realism of Christmas and I think that’s what people enjoy about it,” said Paul Larson, a co-organizer and founder of Cowboy Christmas. “It’s about the birth of Christ and we celebrate that in this show. It’s not just about the holiday, it’s about what we believe, and that’s what makes it so special.”

Larson said he was particularly excited about the quality of performers on tap for this year’s performances.

“It’s probably one of the most talented crews and well-liked, popular casts that we’ve ever had,” he said.

Wine, beer and soft drinks will be available for purchase.

For the first time, tickets to this year’s Cowboy Christmas are reserved seating only. Tickets are available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Homestake Opera House office.
