Lisa Brokop pays tribute to Patsy Cline

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY -

Cana­dian coun­try mu­sic star Lisa Brokop will make her first ap­pear­ance at Har­bourfront The­atre on Fri­day, Aug. 11, per­form­ing “The Patsy Cline Project”.

In this tribute to the leg­endary Cline, Brokop will take the au­di­ence on a jour­ney back to the hey-day of coun­try mu­sic, per­form­ing some of the su­per­star’s most mem­o­rable songs, in­clud­ing “Walkin’ Af­ter Mid­night”, “I Fall to Pieces”, “She’s Got You”, “Sweet Dreams” and “Crazy”.

“I’ll be com­ing full cir­cle with this project,” says Brokop, who hails from Bri­tish Columbia.

“When I first started singing, I would sing some of Patsy’s songs be­cause I didn’t have my own. They are still among some of my favourites to­day, and I am so ex­cited to have the op­por­tu­nity to hon­our this amaz­ing lady and the in­cred­i­ble mu­sic she gave us.”

Brokop’s own no­table mu­sic ca­reer has spanned over two decades and gar­nered her a string of CCMA tro­phies and nom­i­na­tions from the Academy of Coun­try Mu­sic. A num­ber of her ca­reer hits will also be fea­tured through­out the evening, in­clud­ing “Give Me a Ring Some­time”, “Take That”, “How Do I Let Go” and her top-10 smash hit, “Bet­ter Off Bro­ken”.

Cur­tain time is 7:30 p.m. Tick­ets are avail­able at har­bourfrontthe­atre.com.
