Singing Across South Dakota
May 15, 2013
South Dakota's newest country music talent performs in Yankton next Thursday (May 23). Rehme Sutton, who grew up on a ranch near Burke, has just debuted her first album and she included a stop in Yankton as part of a home-state tour.
The free show begins at 9 p.m. at Yankton's newest music venue, Rounding Third (aka Robbie's Little Casino) on Third Street. Everyone is invited to attend.
The Sutton name is synonymous with rodeo, ranching and politics in South Dakota. All those traditions are part of Rehme's music.
Her grandfather Billie Sutton was a state legislator who ran for lieutenant governor, and her brother Billie was a college rodeo star before he was badly injured by a bronc several years ago. Fortunately, he survived and is now a state senator. He's the subject of "Billie's Song," the finale of his sister's album, "Long Road Home."
Rehme has a passion for singing and guitar-playing that comes through loud and clear in her stage performances. Mix that with a deep love of her home state, and the result is a musical freshness that is gaining attention across the country.
Her itinerary includes the following stops.
STURGIS — May 21 at the Knuckle
FORT PIERRE — May 22 at the Casey Tibbs Rodeo Center
YANKTON — May 23 at Rounding Third, 9 p.m.
BURKE — May 25 at Stella's
