Lush Country

Classic country songs from the 1950s and 1960s

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

The seven members of Lush Country are an all-star group of longtime Twin Cities headliners and  A Prairie Home Companion veterans: Dan Chouinard, Prudence Johnson, Richard Kriehn, Gary Raynor, Gary Rue, Pete Johnson and Joe Savage.

Two more Crooners gigs on the books: Sunday July 23 and Thursday August 3. Yup, that’s a long wait, but it’s a busy buncha folks. Admission is free, but if you want to be sure you get a seat, you can make reservations in advance.

Thursday August 10 Lush Country will appear on the Live On the Drive series outdoors on Victory Memorial Drive in North Minneapolis. See you there too.
