Patsy Cline was a record breaking recording artist spending 251 weeks in the Country Music Album charts in the USA. Patsy was a down to earth Country ‘Gal’ who could look good in Western wear or evening dress, as she performed all the Country Ballards. In 2018 it will be 55 years since losing Patsy Cline and this will be an evening to celebrate the power of her music.
Sue Lowry with her powerful rendition of Crazy, Sweet Dreams and I Fall to Pieces will take you back to those Honky Tonk days of pure Country Music with songs including Honky Tonk Merry Go Round, She’s Got You and Got a Lot of Rhythm in my Soul. Sue Lowry was brought up by parents who had their own Country Music Band and as they travelled around Great Britain playing Country Music, this would prove to lay down all of Sue Lowry’s Country Music roots.
Joining Sue Lowry is Marc Robinson, who has up to now been renowned for playing Buddy Holly. Marc will pay tribute to the Granddaddy of Country Music, Hank Williams, with songs that include Howlin’ at the Moon, I Saw the Light and Rootie Tootie.
Roger Bird performs a sensitive tribute to Jim Reeves with his authentic costume and iconic mesmerizing voice. Songs will include Welcome to my World, Distant Drums and the song everyone knows – a song everyone can join in with, Bimbo!
Please wear your Western wear and join us for a Hayride of a show.
Be prepared for a ‘Honkin' Tonkin’ good time with this very special evening of pure Country magic!
