Following the success of One Night Only with Hank Williams I’m presenting another limited run tribute style show in 2019. This year we are excited to be celebrating the music of Buck Owens & The Bakersfield Sound!
Featuring the Sunny Acres band -a five-piece electric country/swing ensemble we mix songs from my previous albums along with a full set of hits from Buck Owens & the Buckaroos catalog circa 1960-1970. I’ve had a lot of people asking for a show that features my originals as well as the classics so we’ve cooked up show that delivers just that!
If you’ve been to any of my concerts you’ll know that no two shows are ever the same. Our 2019 Fall Tour will feature a rotating cast of different harmony singers accompanying us including Terra Spencer, Ruth Manning, and Graham Moorehead. At Ships Company Theatre in Parrsboro we’ll be doing almost exclusively Buck Owens & The Buckaroos material, while venues like the Red Knight Tavern in Yarmouth and the Union Street Cafe in Berwick will be more of a hybrid show as described above.
Buck Owens helped to create the “Bakersfield Sound”, a distinct flavour of country music that opposed the “Nashville sound” and charted 21 #1 hits on Billboard charts between 1963-1988. In this show you’ll hear the familiar songs of Buck’s catalog like “A Tiger by the Tail”, “Waitin in your Welfare Line”, “Together Again”, and collaborations/cover songs Buck worked into his shows of artists like Simon & Garfunkel, The Band, and Dwight Yoakam. Don’t miss this show!
The Sunny Acres Fall Lineup features Kye Ehresman (drums), Dave Campbell (pedal steel guitar), Jill Chambers (bass fiddle) and Phil Sedore (lead guitar).
