The show, which Salestrom has performed nearly 20 times in Colorado, includes original Buffalo Bill songs Salestrom recorded in Nashville with Sam Bush and Chris Nole; a presentation of archived films and photographs; and items on loan from the Buffalo Bill Museum on Lookout Mountain in Golden, Colorado.

Salestrom will narrate the program and perform the original songs live.

Admission is free for kids 16 and younger and all proceeds from adult ticket sales benefit The Grateful Music Foundation’s ukulele program for Big Sky youth. The foundation has donated 12 ukuleles to Big Sky schools thus far with plans to donate additional instruments this year, including a guitar. Fall ukulele classes begin Sept. 1.
