CabarETC: Nashville Gal
February 2 until February 3, 2018
8 pm at Hangar Theatre
Country music began as a boy’s club. Ask many fans for their favorites and you are bound to hear some familiar names: Johnny, George, Willie, and Hank. However, the 1950’s, 60’s, & 70’s also bred a crop of fiery, hard-living women who could down a shot of whiskey, bounce a baby on their arm, and write a killer song- all while keeping that big hair perfectly intact. While singing songs about life’s heartache is not exclusive to one gender, the gals of classic country music set the bar as high as their hair.
From the Smokey Mountains to the Kentucky coalmines, these ground-breaking artists made their way to Nashville to sing their truth with haunting sincerity…and sometimes stirring up a little controversy along the way. They would go on to break down walls and top the charts, becoming some of the most important artists in American music history.
NASHVILLE GAL showcases the lives and music of Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton and many others. You’ll hear classic hits like “Walkin After Midnight,” “Stand By Your Man”, "Coal Miner’s Daughter”, “Jolene” and more...as well as tales of how they were crowned the Queens of Country Music.
Featuring Melissa Hammans (Back to the Garden, August 1969: The Women of Woodstock & Mind the Gap) with music direction by Ithaca’s own, Sue Terwilliger.
