7:30pm - 10:00pm KG & The Ranger Category: Concert

Discovering KG & The Ranger is like turning back the pages of time as they transport you back to the days of the dime matinees and the Silver Screen heroes like Roy Rogers, Sons of the Pioneers and Gene Autry. There is no doubt about their “mission” to keep these wonderful songs alive. They are known for their creative harmony arrangements plus award-winning harmony yodeling. From familiar songs to the less well-known rare gems, they give them all their own unique sound.

Their “musical trail” together started in Madison WI in 1986 when Karen Gogolick was a successful jewelry designer with a passion for folk and early country music. She played guitar, bass and banjo, hosted a local radio show, and began collecting any song she could find about cowboys and cowgirls.

That same year Rick Roltgen was working at a local credit union and playing bass in a country/bluegrass band. Rick always had music in his life in some way, and honed his harmonizing and humor skills in a barbershop quartet. He had grown up with Gene Autry and Roy Rogers for heroes and loved their music.

One summer night, Karen brought her bass to play for a Wild Hog in the Woods Barn Dance. Rick showed up with his bass, too, and as they say, “the rest is history”. They started playing together in an old-timey string band where their shared love of cowboy songs quickly became obvious. They also started singing together as a duo, and in 1989 they married and headed down the trail together as “KG & The Ranger”. Their first official show as KG & The Ranger was at the Wild Hog in April of that year.

Whether being funny or serious, nostalgic or original, they always put on a great show! Awards include Western Music Association "Outstanding Entertainer - Duo" of 2010 and three-time "Harmony Yodeling Champions”.

“KG & The Ranger sing with charm and style, they yodel spectacularly, choose great material with unerring taste, and write fine new songs as well. Their growing and continuing success is well deserved.” ~ Ranger Doug, Riders In The Sky

“KG & The Ranger have a sweet genuine quality" to their harmonies, and their CD Moonlight Trails "is like a late night session where everyone is playing for the pure joy of it" ~ Suze Spencer-Marshall (niece of Sons of the Pioneers' founding member Tim Spencer
