Nudie and his band to per­form coun­try leg­end show start­ing July 8

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT/COMMUNITY -

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.
