Saturday’s Hometown Hootenanny a night of county’s ‘signature’ songs

Herald Staff

The Hometown Hootenanny on April 12 at the Historic Everett Theatre includes performances of “signature” songs of country music superstars.

The Hometown Band will present a dozen “signature” hits by Toby Keith, Randy Travis, Keith Urban, Alan Jackson and other country stars. The band will be joined by singer Kate Olson for several songs.

Hootenanny regular Marcia Kester will offer up her bluesy take on songs that illustrate the high points of many of today’s female stars. Expect to hear familiar songs by Tammy Wynette, Wynonna Judd, Loretta Lynn and others.

And for straight-ahead country-rock fun, the Troy Fair Band returns to the Hootenanny stage to pay tribute to some of their favorites.

Tickets for the April 12 show are $17 for adults, $14 for seniors/students/military, and only $5 for kids 12 and under. Purchase tickets by calling the theater at 425-258-6766. The box office opens at 6:30 the day of the show.
