Yodeling cowgirl at Music in the Park

By Staff | Aug 15, 2014

Returning favorite Kristi Goldade performed Wednesday evening for the penultimate performance of this season’s Music in the Park. She performed covers of old-time country songs, original material and yodeling songs.

“They’re pretty good,” Goldade said of the crowd in Ellery Park. “People seemed pretty interested in what I had to say, and I guess every songwriter has things to say.”

Goldade, a Wishek native, has been singing since she was 3 and yodeling since and performing since she was 8. She cites Hank Williams, Patsy Kline and older Brad Paisley as influences. Now in her 20s, she’s performed under the gazebo five times.

“Every year I get called and I just love coming back, performing and showing (the audience) what I’ve been doing,” Goldade said.

Currently, Goldade is attending East Tennessee State University, where she is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in bluegrass, old time and country music.

“I get to study music theory, sound recording, live sound, guitar, voice – everything you can imagine,” Goldade said.

The last Music in the Park performance for the summer is Aug. 20 at 7 p.m., with the Dakota Keys, of Mandan, performing. A hamburger picnic begins at 5 p.m.
