Tour

The 2017/2018 season is a three-for-one affair, with a brand-new show, Tennessee Walt’s Hanks a Lot! (featuring songs by Hank Williams, Hank Snow, Hank Thompson, Hank Locklin, Hank Cochrane, Hank Garland and Hanks to be named later) running alongside the continuing  Tennessee Walt’s The Other Great American Songbook, an introduction to the classic country music of the 1930s through 1950s, featuring songs by Hank Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, Ernest Tubb, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and more, and Tennessee Walt’s Bristol & Beyond: The Birth of Country Music (commemorating the 90th anniversary of the Bristol Sessions).  There’s no significant overlap between the three shows, and anyone who loves classic country music will want to see them all!TennesseeWalt_Headshot1.jpg
