Lush Country

Classic country songs from the 1950s and 1960s

Are you lonesome tonight? Got heartaches by the number? A hankering for pedal steel guitar, some high lonesome Floyd Cramer piano and that Patsy Cline yodel? Then you gotta hear Lush Country, an all-star band  playing the best country songs of the hi-fi era, from Eddy Arnold to Tammy Wynette and back again.

Upcoming gigs:

 Friday Oct. 13, Thursday Nov. 9, Friday Dec. 1, Thursday and Friday Dec. 28 and 29. Crooners Lounge, Fridley. Free, but best to reserve a seat for fifteen bucks.

(Had a great time at the Eagles Club  in Minneapolis last month. There’s talk of making it a habit. Stay tuned.)
