Nudie and his band to perform country legend show starting July 8
Harmony House Theatre is adding a new Saturday night show this summer for Nudie and his band to perform their country legend show.
Every Saturday night between July 8 and Aug. 26 Nudie (Matt Putnam) and his band, Christopher Martell and Bobby McIsaac, will perform an evening of classic country music with all the hits from favourite artists from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.
Audiences will hear the best of Johnny Cash, Hank Snow, Willie Nelson and many more. The show will also feature a visual backdrop of various images to accompany the songs.
After soaking up musical experiences in Toronto, Montreal, Phoenix, Austin and New York, Nudie now hangs his Gibson guitar in Charlottetown, P.E.I. His stage name is a nod to Nashville’s rhinestone cowboy tailor, Nudie Cohn.
Nudie’s decades-long performing career has landed him on the stages of the Philadelphia, Montreal and Ottawa Folk Festivals, Willie Nelson’s end-of-tour party in 2006, a support slot with Marty Stuart & The Fabulous Superlatives, and official showcases at Folk Alliance and Americana Music conferences.
His songwriting style, steeped in heartbreak and twang, is captured on his 2008 debut with Nudie & The Turks, and two solo albums.
His latest offering, Everything’s Different In The Night, is a collection of songs about relationships, and stories from the road, including, “Mr. Why’d You Come To Texas,” a duet with Sylvie Smith about not knowing how to two-step, and “Train You Took My Baby,” inspired by a trip across Canada
Tickets for the shows at Harmony House are available by calling Ticketpro at 1-888-3119090 or at the door subject to availability.
Nudie and his band will bring their country legend show to Harmony House Theatre in Hunter River this summer.
