"Patsy Cline Tribute" by Sara Catherine Wheatley
A native of Alabama, Sara Catherine Wheatley grew up listening to the songs of Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton, Emmy Lou Harris, Linda Ronstadt and the like. These iconic female voices shaped her voice and sparked a love of country music and beautifully written songs. She comes to Port Ludlow in a "Patsy Cline" Tribute with piano accompaniment.
Portland, Oregon's Broadway Rose Theatre Company in 2009 staged a sold-out run of "Always - Patsy Cline," a two-person musical featuring Wheatley in the role of Cline. In response to audience demand, the company reassembled the original cast in 2013 for repeat performances.
One of the best-loved names in country music, Cline's brief career ended in a plane crash at age 30. To this day her voice continues to enthrall fans and influence many of today's country singers. In her tribute, Wheatley will recreate many of Cline's hits including "I Fall To Pieces," "Crazy," "Walking After Midnight," "Just a Closer Walk with Thee," "Your Cheatin' Heart" and many more. Grant Butler, writing for Portland's "Oregonian" says, "Wheatley not only bears a strong resemblance to Cline, she's got the sound nailed."
"After years of singing Patsy Cline songs," Wheatley says, "it never gets old. There is something undeniable about Patsy's voice, and I always feel honored whenever I have the chance to celebrate her work." She is now based in Nashville and where she hopes to make her mark as a singer-songwriter in a rock-country duo "Two Lucky."
This is a cabaret performance with the audience seated at tables. No-host beverage service will be available. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for general admission table selection.
