Wyoming native, Ned Ledoux will make his debut at The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar on Dec. 15. Following in the footsteps of a famous parent can prove a challenge for any artist, but for Ned LeDoux, his authentic Wyoming roots inspire his own music, in the same tradition that fueled his father, the legendary Chris LeDoux.
“I’m carrying on a family tradition but I’m writing my own story,” said LeDoux. “When people come out to our shows, spending their hard-earned money on a ticket, I don’t want them to leave disappointed. We’re going to give you a show, and leave you wanting more. I’m always out of breath and soaking wet when we’re done, but it’s so much fun.”
The show is sold out!

Kick off the Winter Hootenanny with a special holiday-themed hoot. Doors open at 5 p.m., music starts at 6 p.m.
This year will mark the impressive 1,249th Holiday Hootenanny performance. It is a very popular open mic that fills up fast. Musicians sign up between 5 and 6 p.m. with the show starting right at 6. Musicians play two, three-minute songs, acoustic only, and are asked to play a traditional (old enough to vote) tune + one other.
Over the years, “The Hoot” has hosted hundreds of local musicians, as well as, out-of-town celebrities such as John Denver, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Peter Rowan and Chuck Pyle in an atmosphere of congeniality. Differing from other open mic venues, the emphasis is on traditional acoustic music. No amplification is allowed other than two microphones. The audience is asked to be quiet and listen. Often, musicians join together in spur-of-the-moment groups.
Many of the shows will be live-streamed on Silver Dollar TV (YouTube) for those who cannot be present.
