Jason Petty presents “Hank Williams – The Lonesome Tour” in Winkler Oct. 22, in what organizers are describing as “more than a tribute”.
Direct from the historic stages of Nashville Tennessee comes the show that will instantly transform its audience back to the early 1950’s when Hank Williams was the biggest name in country music anywhere.
When Jason Petty first performed the role of Hank at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium in 1996, little did he imagine that more than twenty years later he would still be portraying this legendary man in his own highly acclaimed show.
As his in depth research on Hank began, Petty met and became friends with Williams’ friends, family members, musicians, and fellow stars of the Grand Ole Opry. They took him into their confidence and shared intimate details of the man’s life and career. From the good times to the hard times, Jason listened and began to understand this man like no other. Now he brings that intimate story to life in this new one man tribute – “Hank Williams – The Lonesome Tour”.
Don Helms, Hank’s best friend and steel guitar player very simply stated: “Jason’s singing of Williams’ classic songs is the best there’s ever been”. This feeling combined with his natural ability to tell stories of Hank’s life and career with southern charm and down home humour has given the show rave reviews across North America.
Sit back and relax and let Jason Petty transform you back to another day and time… the days of Hank Williams. This will be an evening the audience will never forget.
The concert takes place Monday, Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. at the P.W. Centennial Concert Hall in Winkler.
