Patsy Cline: Music & Memories with Sandy Kelly
After a 40 date sell-out theatre tour of the UK, Sandy Kelly tours Ireland in 2018 with her Patsy Cline – Music & Memories show. This wonderfully nostalgic show brings the audience on a trip down memory lane to hear the music and insight into the life of Patsy Cline, one of the greatest singers that ever lived.
It is easy to see why Patsy’s music has been so enduring since her tragic death in a 1963 plane crash at just 30-years-old. Her rich and expressive voice coupled with classic songs like “Crazy”, “Walking After Midnight”, “Sweet Dreams” etc., have insured her recordings are timeless.
2018 will be a very special year for Sandy Kelly who plays the lead role in this concert performance. It marks the 25th anniversary of the first Patsy Cline show that Sandy wrote, produced and starred in. Such was the interest in Sandy’s “Patsy” show that RTE invited her do to a 13-week TV series in 1991. Sandy’s “Patsy Cline Show” was contracted by a major London production company and became the first and only country music show to have an extended run in the London’s prestigious West End which starred Sandy Kelly and Grand Ole Opry legend George Hamilton IV.
Sadly, George Hamilton IV passed away in 2014. After careful consideration Sandy invited one of the new stars of Irish country music, Barry Kirwan, to join her on this tour. Barry, son of Dominic Kirwan has performed extensively in Nashville and pursued his own very successful career. Sandy is looking forward to meeting all her old friends and making new ones too during this truly nostalgic tour to celebrate the Music and Memories of Patsy Cline.
