Brenda Lee Cot­trell and The Leg­ends to take you back to the ’60s

Moose Jaw Express.com - - News -

Brenda Lee Cot­trell and The Leg­ends, ‘The Mem­o­rable Mu­sic of the ’60s Leg­endary Ladies’ will take cen­ter stage at the Mae Wil­son The­atre on Satur­day, Jan­uary 26, start­ing at 7pm.

The show will take au­di­ence on a nos­tal­gic jour­ney through some of their fa­vorite songs and per­for­mances from iconic women who paved the way for mu­si­cians to­day and mu­sic lovers across the globe.

Brenda Lee Cot­trell, whose stage pres­ence cap­tures and de­liv­ers th­ese time­less clas­sics, says while the show high­lights and pays trib­ute to leg­endary artistes of the ’60s, the show is for ev­ery­one to en­joy as it brings a lot of di­ver­sity through the many gen­res of mu­sic per­formed dur­ing the show. “I love tak­ing the au­di­ence on a ‘walk down mem­ory lane’ as they re-live hits sung by some of the most iconic fe­male singers of our time - from one of the most in­cred­i­ble and di­verse mu­si­cal eras...the ’60s,” she said. “My trib­ute is a multi-genre per­for­mance — coun­try mu­sic, folk, early pop, R&B, Bri­tish in­va­sion... a lit­tle some­thing for ev­ery­one. For the younger au­di­ence mem­bers who at­tend our shows, it is of­ten a fas­ci­nat­ing dis­cov­ery of this great mu­sic. And for those who lived and re­mem­ber this mu­sic...it is a tele­por­ta­tion back to those times.” In ad­di­tion to per­form­ing the ’60s hits, Cot­trell says the au­di­ence will also en­joy the sto­ries of some of th­ese ‘Leg- endary Ladies’ and how some of their most mem­o­rable songs came to be. “Dur­ing the show, I of­ten tell in­ter­est­ing sto­ries about the mu­sic and the leg­endary ladies I am pay­ing trib­ute to, as well as what is hap­pen­ing his­tor­i­cally in the world at that time. All of the leg­endary ladies were unique from each other in their vo­cal styles and per­for­mance man­ner­ism and I love chang­ing cos­tumes dur­ing the per­for­mance.” She says that shar­ing this era of mu­sic with au­di­ences is a pas­sion, but she has also evolved as a more di­verse and dy­namic per­former.

“My trib­ute show has al­ways fo­cused on the ’60s — the era I am most pas­sion­ate about. But I have evolved it to now in­clude some songs by Leg­endary Ladies of other eras. My ‘One Woman Trib­ute Show’ — which is also very well re­ceived and at­tended across Sask. and Al­berta — now in­cludes over 16 leg­endary ladies span­ning the 1950s to the 1980s. This year we have added some great sur­prise el­e­ments to the show which ev­ery­one will have to wait to see on show night, Jan­uary 26th.”

The pop­u­lar show is com­ing to Moose Jaw for the fifth time and Cot­trell says she is look­ing for­ward to an­other great turn out.

“We last per­formed in Moose Jaw in 2016 and are look­ing for­ward to re­turn­ing to one of Saskatchewan’s best venues. We al­ways ap­pre­ci­ate the warm re­cep­tion we re­ceive from the won­der­ful folks in Moose Jaw, and love en­ter­tain­ing ev­ery­one who at­tends our shows.
