Louisiana Hayride returns to Chilliwack

Unique show, Louisiana Hayride, is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre Friday, Nov. 4.

The talented singers and musicians of the Louisiana Hayride Show recreate iconic artists like Hank Williams

Do you remember Hank Williams? Roy Orbison? Patsy Cline? Did you ever see them in concert? Well, you can now.

A unique show, known as the Louisiana Hayride, based on the historical radio show where these artists (and many more) performed, is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre Friday, Nov. 4.

You will have the opportunity to attend a magical evening of entertainment where you’ll believe you really are at a concert featuring these superstars, enjoying their wonderful music from years gone by.

The talented singers and musicians of the Louisiana Hayride show recreate these iconic artists and you’ll see and hear Hank Williams singing Hey, Good Lookin, and Roy Orbison shows up with Crying and Pretty Woman. Patsy Cline will send shivers up your spine when she sings Sweet Dreams and you’ll be completely entertained by Willie Nelson’s visit.

The show also includes a salute to our great Canadian legends, Hank Snow, Anne Murray, Ian and Sylvia, and Shania Twain.

“The music in this show will bring back memories from a bygone era. This is music the audience remembers, either firsthand, or in many cases it’s music they remember their parents or grandparents playing. Music that’s no longer easily accessible,” says show creator Gil Risling.

The cast of multi-talented musicians includes Gil Risling (Hank Williams, Willie Nelson and Roy Orbison), Andrea Anderson (Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn), William Brookfield (Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Conway Twitty), and Mike Melnichuk (Ray Price and Faron Young).

Louisiana Hayride hits the stage Friday, Nov. 4 at 7:30 p.m. at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. Tickets $45 and available at the Centre Box Office (9201 Corbould St.), by phone at 604-391-SHOW(7469), or online at chilliwackculturalcentre.com.
