Horizon Stage - 1001 Calahoo Rd, Spruce Grove, AB
Legendary Fringe performer Chase Padgett (Six Guitars) returns with another masterful one-man play with some music mixed in. 40 years ago a mysterious acoustic guitarist appeared out of nowhere, conquered the music industry, and vanished without a trace… until now. Padgett becomes manager, mother, mentor, and the prodigy himself, as each tells their side of the rise, demise, and resurrection of the best damn guitar player you’ve never heard of: the Nashville Hurricane.
During the course of this 75 minute play the audience learns about Henry Waltrip, aka the Nashville Hurricane. From his humble trailer park beginnings alongside his white-trash mother, Brenda, to the crazy gigs on the road with his blues playing mentor, Tyrone, the stories and songs unfold into hilarious rants about love and music. A riveting tale involving the dark side of show biz, and a blazing guitar finale that will blow you away!
