South Dakota's music culture is a reflection of its rich cowboy tradition -
with the occasional nod to country western outlaws in places like Deadwood and the Black Hills. This culture is unmistakeable for anyone who has made the summer pilgrimage to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally (bikes are optional, but good music isn't), or to the Sioux Falls Jazz and Blues Festival.
