John Grant sings the songs of Patsy Cline with Richard Hawley and Band

+ Lauren Housley

John Grant

Two of this generation's best singer-songwriters come together for a live celebration of the late legendary country star, Patsy Cline.

Singer Patsy Cline paved the way for a thousand imitations – bridging pop and country with her unforgettable voice and star quality.

In this special performance, modern-day icons John Grant and Richard Hawley pay tribute by taking on her repertoire. Known for his searing wit, tenderness and commanding stage presence, singer-songwriter John Grant lends his enchanting vocals to proceedings, while Richard Hawley and his band bring their sumptuous live sound.

Drawing from a songbook full of classics like 'Walkin’ After Midnight' and 'Crazy', you’ll hear the crème de la crème of country pop from some of the finest performers around. With songs spanning romance, heartbreak and drama – with a good dollop of joy – this is set to be a real sonic and visual feast. Cowboy boots optional.
