Lisa Brokop pays tribute to Patsy Cline
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.
