Do you remember Elvis? Roy Orbison? Patsy Cline? Did you ever see them in concert? Well, you can now!
A unique show, known as the Louisiana Hayride, based on the historical radio show where these artists (and many more) performed, is coming to the North Peace Cultural Centre Thursday, Nov. 8 at 7:30 p.m.
You will have the opportunity to attend a magical evening of entertainment where you’ll believe you really are at a concert featuring these superstars, enjoying their wonderful music from years gone by. The talented singers and musicians of the Louisiana Hayride Show recreate these iconic artists and you’ll see and hear Elvis sing That’s Alright Mama, the song he sang the first time he was on the Louisiana Hayride when he was 19 years old.
And Elvis doesn’t stop there. He’ll be sure to sing a few other huge hits! Roy Orbison will show up with Crying and Pretty Woman and always a favorite, Patsy Cline will be there as well singing her hits. Another audience favorite is Loretta Lynn singing her signature song Coalminer’s Daughter and her little sister, Crystal Gayle will also be there singing a couple of her chart toppers. Classic country doesn’t get any more pure than Lefty Frizzell and you’ll be treated to his music as well.
In addition to these incredible tributes, you’ll hear songs by Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Roger Miller, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Buck Owens and more.
Many of these iconic artists have had a great influence on current singers and to add even more variety to the show you will be entertained by Shania Twain as she makes the connection between ‘old’ and ‘new’ country music.
You’ll enjoy an evening of stellar musicianship and extraordinary vocals presented in a completely unique and entertaining way.
The Louisiana Hayride, complete with studio stage set, amazing tribute artists and live band will bring you back in time to when songs were meaningful, the words were understood and the sound was pleasant. Come to the Louisiana Hayride Show — you will be amazed and entertained from start to finish!
It all coming to the North Peace Cultural Centre Thursday, Nov. 8 at 7:30 p.m. when the Louisiana Hayride Show rolls into town.
