Country music fans will be excited to hear that Patsy Cline and Friends the tribute concert is coming to St. Helens Theatre Royal on Thursday 4th May.
Providing pure country magic, the show pays tribute to legendary artists Patsy Cline, Hank Williams and Jim Reeves and will take you back to those Honky Tonk days which songs such as Honky Tonk Merry go Round, She’s Got You and Got a lot of Rhythm in my Soul.
Performing as Patsy Cline is Sue Lowry with her powerful renditions of Crazy, Sweet Dreams and I Fall to Pieces.
The velvet country voice of Patsy Cline caught Sue’s imagination as a child and led her to become a lifelong fan of country music! Her parents had their own country music band and played all around Great Britain laying the foundations for Sue’s country music roots!
Patsy Cline was a record breaking recording artist spending 251 weeks in the Country Music Album charts in the U.S.A. A down to earth country ‘Gal,’ Patsy could look good in Western wear or any evening dress, as she performed all the country ballads.
Around 54-years-ago on 5th March 1963, we unfortunately lost one of the Queens of Country when a tragic plane crash claimed the lives of Cowboy Copas and Hawkshaw Hawkins along with Patsy Cline. This show pays tribute to her legendary talents.
Joining Sue on the St. Helens stage is Mark Robinson. Renowned for his role as Buddy Holly, Mark will pay tribute to the ‘Granddaddy of Country Music’ Hank Williams with hits including Howlin’ at the Moon, I Saw the Light and Rootie Tootie.
Lee Davidge performs a sensitive tribute to Jim Reeves with his authentic costume and iconic mesmerizing voice singing Welcome to my World, Distant Drums, and the song everyone knows and can join in with… Bimbo!
Chantelle Nolan, Theatre Manager said: “Patsy Cline and Friends will be the perfect tribute to a much-loved country artist. We’re looking forward to welcoming the band to St Helens Theatre Royal – the audience will love it!”
So, throw on your best Western wear and head to St Helens for a Hayride of a Show!
