THE WORLD’s biggest country music touring show is coming to Shetland later this summer.
Presented by Shetland Country Music Club, Country Superstars and the Country Superstars Band will bring their show to the stage at the Clickimin bowls hall on Wednesday 27 July, starting at 7.30pm.
Described as the leading impersonators of the country music greats Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers, the show tells the diverse story of country music.
The show is hosted by Sarah Jayne who has been performing as Dolly Parton for more than two decades.
A representative of Shetland Country Music Club said: “Sarah Jayne and award winning vocal impersonator Andy Crust take us on a journey back through time meeting some of the most influential icons who shaped country music history.
“The show features Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Billie Jo Spears, Kenny Rogers, Willie Nelson, Tammy Wynette, Garth Brooks, John Denver, Glen Campbell and Shania Twain.
“Each artist not only looks and sounds like the country star they portray, but these professional performers also transform themselves through hours of practice at their craft. Every detail is taken into consideration from script, choice of songs, hair, make-up and mannerisms, as well as replica costumes.”
Tickets are available from High Level Music in Lerwick.
