 An intimate discussion with local legend and South Dakota Country Music Hall of Fame fiddler Kenny Putnam. Join us as Kenny talks about his initial desire to play the cello, his early years in school orchestras, touring with the Red Willow Band, being part of “country-western guitarist-extraordinaire” Roy Clark’s world-renowned band and his return to South Dakota from a 15-year stint on the road – where Kenny now operates his own design and photo restoration business; when he’s not traveling somewhere across the state to play the fiddle.
