Hank Williams and Patsy Cline Tribute with Trinadora

April 8th, 2017,
2:00pm to 3:30pm
Hank Williams ranks among the most noteworthy composers of all time. His ability to convey profound experience with simple lyrics and melodies was uncanny. In 1954, Tony Bennett introduced Hank to a mainstream audience by recording "Cold, Cold, Heart" and subsequently, Hank's songs have been covered by 100s of famous singers. Patsy's stunning vocal talent and unique ability to embody emotion with her voice "set the gold standard" for female vocalists.
