What a start to our ‘winter’ season!
The last time Sharna Knight sang for us was as a ‘stand in’ for another artiste who didn’t turned up. That night she said that she could probably only manage about an hour of Country Music as she normally sings Rock ‘n Roll & 60’s/70’s music. She went down so well that we had to book her again. She said she would have to ‘brush up’ on some songs she knew to give us a full Country Night. She certainly did that by giving us solid Country Songs no-one else sings, such as Charlie Rich’s Most Beautiful Girl in the World, Dwight Yoakum’s 1000 Miles From Nowhere, Loretta Lynn’s Coal Miner’s Daughter. Sharna also sang a few songs from her normal repertoire such as Summertime Blues and Ricky Nelson’s Garden Party. These have such a strong Country feel to them and everyone enjoyed them – in fact she got a standing ovation at the end of the night. Everyone was aware of the effort/practice she must have put in to entertain us.
Thank you Sharna. You were very much appreciated. We will have to wait until next year to see you again!
