On Thursday Sept 5th, 2013 at the Lula Lounge in Toronto, Heather Morgan hosts a stellar evening of top notch performers doing their favourite Patsy Cline songs. Now in it's 8th year!
This year will also include a special tribute to country legend George Jones, a contemporary of Cline's, who left this mortal coil just this past April.

This is a celebration. But it also with a heavy heart. We lost a rock of our band. James Gray (Blue Rodeo, Vital Sines) passed away on Aug 5th. James was part of the show since the very beginning and we shared many good times over the years. It will be hard to imagine the show without him.

We will be honouring our departed friend the night of the show.

The performers will be backed by the all star backing band lead by Steve 'Bebop Cowboys" Briggs, Dennis Pendrith (Vinyl Cafe) on upright bass, Nichol Robertson on guitar, Cam Giroux on drums and Ted Hawkins on harmony vocals. Denis Keldie (Jeff Healy, Stompin' Tom, Etta James) will be on piano.

Performers (in alphabetical order) include:

Alex Pangman
