Go walkin' to hear sounds ot Patsy Cline
Fans of that early Nashville sound can hear “The Music and Magic of Patsy Cline,” back by popular demand at the Zumbrota State Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Saturday Jan. 11.
The show, brought by Crossings, features Cassie and the Bobs performing Cline’s music.
Cassie Wiesner’s portrayal of Cline takes audiences on a trip down memory lane as she sings “Crazy,” “Walkin’ After Midnight,” “I Fall To Pieces,” and many more songs.
Cline was a pioneer of the 1960s Nashville sound and as a female headline performer. She had attained great success by age 30, when she died in a private plane crash. She remains a major influence for many singers and is one of the most acclaimed female vocalists of the 20th century. She was posthumously inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame — the first female soloist to receive that honor.
In addition to Wiesner, the Bobs feature musicians, including current or former members of bands like Silverado, Oh Aces, the Salty Dogs, Skilly and Duff, Patty and the Pinetones, the Waybacks and Little Henry.
Cassie and the Bobs have been touring Minnesota and eastern South Dakota for five years.
The group continues to draw hundreds of people to their performances, a testimony to the enduring popularity of Cline even 50 years after her death.
