With classic songs like “Georgia On My Mind”, “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain”, and “Stardust”, Edmonton’s favourite songbird, Andrea House, finds inspiration and love at the heart of some of Willie Nelson’s favourite songs.
From the creative team behind 5 star, held over Fringe hits, “Forget Me Not”, “Valentine’s Train” and “Song of the Martingale”, this storytelling concert features some of Alberta’s best musicians including: Chris Andrew (piano), Rubim de Toledo (bass) and Harley Symington (guitar).
Telling the story with Andrea are Sterling Award winning actors Mat Busby and Dana Andersen.
From a humble beginning in Abbott, Texas, Willie grew to be one of the most recognized and beloved songwriters of all time. It’s no secret that Willie Nelson’s life has been filled with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. He performed for presidents, starred in Hollywood films, and made a comeback after owing the IRS millions. Yet more than that, he still inspires generations of songwriters to pick up a guitar and find three chords and the truth.
Directed by multiple Sterling Award winner, Davina Stewart, “Chasing Willie Nelson” weaves jazz and country, love found and love lost, into a musical dream you won’t forget.
Featuring: Andrea House, Dana Andersen, Mat Busby, Chris Andrew, Harley Symington, Bob Blair, Rubim de Toledo, Duke Paetz.
