Win tickets to ‘Ken Burns Country Music Roadshow’ at the Saroyan
You can win a pair of tickets to an exciting forum with documentarian Ken Burns and a sneak preview of his new 16-hour documentary “Country Music,” which will debut on PBS in the fall. “The Ken Burns Country Music Roadshow” is 6-9 p.m. Thursday, July 25, at the Saroyan Theatre. Audience members will get a chance to see parts of the documentary series and — even better — experience a live Q&A with Burns, writer/producer Dayton Duncan and producer Julie Dunfey.
Rick Bentley, former movie and TV critic for the Fresno Bee, is the moderator. (You can read more about what Rick is up to these days here.)
