2:00 PM MATINEE show is $30.
7:30 pm EVENING show is $35 -SORRY, SOLD OUT
LEAD, SD – The popular Black Hills Cowboy Christmas concerts and dance will feature ten regional performers this year and will be held on Saturday, December 10, 2016, at the Historic Homestake Opera House located at 313 West Main Street, Lead.

This exciting annual Christmastime event is offered twice on Saturday, December 10 and catered by Cheyenne Crossing of Lead. The show is featured at 2:00 pm with a matinee show, desserts, and coffee, and also a 7:30 pm evening show with hors d'oeurves and cash bar, followed by a down-home cowboy music dance.

This year’s award-winning performer 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 Brent Morris of Hill City; SD cowboy poet Robert Dennis of Red Owl; Kim Bachman, a singer/songwriter from Belle Fourche; bassist/singer Chet Murray from Rapid City; and vocalist Sarah Carlson and pianist Ruth Groeneveld, both of Lead.

The lineup for the concerts and dance is always packed with talent. But there are new additions to this year’s show.

“The 2016 Black Hills Cowboy Christmas has been enhanced a bit,” says Sarah Carlson, executive director of the the Historic Homestake Opera House and Black Hills Cowboy Christmas performer. “We are opening earlier and featuring pre-show entertainment by western music musicians Allen and Jill Kirkham of Custer, and we’ll also be peforming with our brand new Yamaha grand piano which was installed this year.” Ticketholders are also invited to explore a new Interpretive Exhibit that retells the 100-year story of the Opera House. The exhibit opened in May 2016.

“The true spirit of Christmas is felt in this show,” says Paul Larson, co-organizer and cowboy music performer. “Add in the acoustics in that theater and these unbelievably talented performers and you’ve got a beautiful experience,” says Larson. “The Christmas concert pieces are soulful and fulfilling and the dance is that down-home, old-fashioned cowboy dance.”

“There’s nothing like Christmastime in the Black Hills,” says Sarah “This is one of those events in which you will leave changed. The whole show lifts your spirits.”

Admission is $30 for the matinee show and $35 for the evening show and dance. Doors open 2 hours prior to showtime.
