The Drumheller Mail - - CLASSIFIEDS - Sub­mit­ted

A unique show, known as the Louisiana Hayride, based on the his­tor­i­cal ra­dio show, where artists and many more per­form, is re­turn­ing to Drumheller.

The tal­ented singers and mu­si­cians of the Louisiana Hayride Show recre­ate iconic artists; Hank Wil­liams, Roy Or­bi­son, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Con­way Twitty, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette and Wil­lie Nel­son, singing their big hits! There will be songs by Faron Young, Red Foley, Burl Ives and Ray Price.

Show cre­ator Gil Ris­ling states, “The mu­sic in this show will bring back mem­o­ries from a by­gone era. This is the mu­sic the au­di­ence re­mem­bers, whether first hand, or in many cases, it’s the mu­sic they re­mem­ber their par­ents or grand­par­ents play­ing.”

“The cast and crew of the Louisiana Hayride is ded­i­cated to bring­ing authen­tic mu­sic to you. The songs you hear will be true to the orig­i­nals. You will be trans­ported back to a time when mu­sic was mean­ingf ul, words were un­der­stood and the sound was pleas­ant.” ex­pressed Ris­ling.

On Satur­day, May 14, the show comes to town, at the Bad­lands Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity. Tick­ets are avail­able at Drumheller Co-op Food Store or on­line at www. tick­et­seller.ca

The troupe first played in Drumhel le r on Oc­to­ber 25, 2015.
