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.
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.)
The seven members of Lush Country are longtime Twin Cities headliners and Prairie Home Companion veterans: (from left) Joe Savage, Richard Kriehn, Peter Johnson, Gary Raynor, Gary Rue, Prudence Johnson and Dan Chouinard. (photo by Rick Spaulding)
Inquiries welcome. Contact Dan about Lush Country.
