On March 9 the Bear’s Den Showroom at the Seneca Niagara Resort and Casino turned into a bit of Nashville when the Legendary Ladies of country music tribute show came to Niagara Falls.
In the early days of Country music it was very much a man’s world until Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, and Loretta Lynn came on the scene and paved the way for generations of Country music singers to come.
The Legendary Ladies of Country Music show pays tribute to the to the three pioneering Hall of Fame members with music and stories by three women who take on the persona of the stars.
Backed by a four piece band that included a banjo and a stand up bass play as the women took turns as they performed the familiar hit songs by the legendary entertainers.
With Dolly getting the night started off to a rousing start with “Mule Skinner Blues”; the show included “Gotta Lot of Rhythm in My Soul”, “You’re Looking at Country”, “Coat of Many Colors”, “Walking After Midnight”, “Fist City”, “Dumb Blonde”, “Leavin’ on Your Mind”, “You Ain’t Woman Enough”, “My Blue Tears”, “Over Me Honey Do”, “After the Fire is Gone”, “Joshua”, “Never No Moe”, “Coal Miner’s Daughter”, “Seven Bridges Road”, “Harper Valley PTA”, “Till I Get it Right”, a rendition of “Folsom Prison Blues”by the band, “Crazy”, “She’s Got You”, “Jolene”, “Jackson”, “Blue Kentucky Girl”, “Sweet Dreams”, “I’m a Honky Tonk Girl”, and “Stand By Your Man”.
After some arousing cheers and applause from the audience, the ladies returned to give an encore performance of “9 to 5”.
The near packed house of Country music fans were eager to shout out their favourites, join in on the songs, and even stay for more as they continued to call out songs even after the ladies had left the stage.
