Meg McLynn to Bring Patsy Cline to Arthur Newman Theater Palm Desert, 9/14
Audiences will have a chance to see Meg McLynn in "Foolin' 'Round: The Patsy Cline Songbook" for one show only at the Arthur Newman Theater at the Joslyn Center in Palm on Sunday, September 14, 2014 at 2 PM. The title of the show is taken from one of Patsy Cline's many hit songs, which will be featured in this tribute backed by The Purple Phoenix Trio led by Seattle musical director David Duvall.
Originally from the East Coast, Meg McLynn earned her BFA degree then left to entertain audiences from Miami to Anchorage before settling in Seattle in 2010 and teaches acting and voice as well as performs in theatrical and musical productions and as a popular singer with local bands in jazz, and blues clubs, along with her cabaret solo shows. Her interest in the legendary country star came about after singing Ms. Cline's signature hit "Crazy" and fans saying how much their voices were alike, which led Meg to learn more of Patsy's songs. Researching the singer's story came next and Meg's extensive acting training made telling it to audiences came easy, but don't expect an impersonation or costumes. You will get Patsy's familiar hit songs that will bring back memories of the country star that died tragically in a single-engine plane crash on March 4, 1963 at the age of 29 with 3 other country performers in route to Nashville after performing for a benefit in Kansas City.
