The Red Scarf Society for the Performing Arts is pleased to present "A Tribute to Patsy Cline" starring Joni Morris on Friday, September 9, 7:30 PM (doors open 7:00 pm) at the Avery Theater, Etna, CA.
Joni Morris has been critically acclaimed as the "most authentic Patsy Cline Music Tribute Artist ever known!" Her 25 year career as a nationally touring vocalist and entertainer proves her excellence!! Joni has performed in over 1000 venues (in close to 50 states, including Alaska and Hawaii). Her unforgettable shows include classic, beautiful renditions of the songs Patsy was most known for, like "Crazy," "Sweet Dreams," "Walkin' After Midnight," "I Fall To Pieces," and so many more!The audience will “be treated to some classic, unforgettable music, beautiful costumes and some great comedy,” Morris says.
David Bean will be accompanying Joni on guitar and keyboard while Matt Cardinalle is the production manager. Cline’s first big hit song, was “Walking After Midnight”, that came out in 1957. She had performed on a show called “Arthur Godfrey Talent Scouts” and she knocked them out with that song. That performance helped her career get started.
Cline was tragically killed in a plane crash in Tennessee in 1963, at 30. She was posthumously inducted to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1973, the first female soloist to ever have the honor.
Morris chooses to honor Cline’s music because she was such an icon for country music. “Before Patsy, it was a man’s world. She broke out and just paved the way for women after her, and really proved . . . that a woman could have a career in country music,” Morris said.
