Grand Ole Opry North com­ing to Hep­worth

Wiarton Echo - - CLASSIFIEDS -

The pop­u­lar Grand Ole Opry Hep­worth North show re­turns for its 5th an­nual con­cert at the Hep­worth Shal­low Lake Le­gion – Mu­sic Hall of Fame au­di­to­rium this Satur­day.

Bog­nor Jam is well known for pro­mot­ing young and up­com­ing tal­ent. That’s where 18-year-old Madi­son Shaw of Oliphant fits in. Shaw takes the stage for the first time with the True Coun­try Show band.

Thanks to Paul Wil­liamson and his band De­tour, Shaw has al­ready had some ex­pe­ri­ence in front of an au­di­ence. “The Opry will cer­tainly add to her re­sume,” noted Arnie Clark, as­so­ci­ate pro­ducer of Bog­nor Jam.

“We’ve done a num­ber of shows there over the years, but the Opry event is spe­cial,” Bill Mur­doch, pro­ducer of the Bog­nor Jam’s Opry coun­try mu­sic show, said. “Like Nashville, our own Opry evening pro­vides some di­verse en­ter­tain­ment, plus hon­ours and rec­og­nizes the many tal­ented mu­si­cians and singers that are such a big cul­tural part of the twin coun­ties.”

This year’s show fea­tures the True Coun­try Show band along with the True Heart Trio vo­cal­ists, Sue Mur­doch, Karen May and Jus­tine Far­rar.

The band will also back some very spe­cial guests in­clud­ing Pam Mill­sap, of south Texas. Mill­sap is no stranger to coun­try, blue­grass and gospel mu­sic, hav­ing en­joyed a ca­reer en­ter­tain­ing at many venues across the USA in­clud­ing Bran­son, Mis­souri.

The guest list also in­cludes the ever-pop­u­lar Beck­ett clan with fam­ily mem­bers, Stan and Bill Beck­ett, John and Tyler. Lo­cal coun­try crooner, Amanda Dorey and well­known rodeo host and co­me­dian, Terry Mokriy of Fev­er­sham, are also fea­tured.

The Opry will also of­fer some fea­ture tunes by Kenny ’Key­board’ Fro­mager, Buck ’O Wil­liams Jr., Gordy Cot­trill, Lloyd Wil­liamson and his son, Paul Wil­liamson.

The con­cert starts at 7 p.m. and will be recorded live by Coun­try 93 Ra­dio. Tick­ets are $25 and are avail­able in Hep­worth at Cindy’s Va­ri­ety and in Owen Sound at David Fro­mager’s Mu­sic & More, Bayshore Coun­try Feeds and Long and Oliphant’s Madi­son Shaw will make a guest ap­pear­ance at the 5th an­nual Grand Ole Opry North in Hep­worth, Oct. 14 McQuade.
