CRAZY about Patsy Cline
Patsy Cline was born on September 8, 1932, in Winchester, Virginia. Cline performed for nearly a decade before her breakthrough 1957 television appearance, singing “Walking after Midnight.” She went on to many crossover pop and country hits, including “Crazy” and “I Fall To Pieces,” becoming one of the leading Nashville figures before her death in a plane crash in 1963, in Camden, Tennessee. Fifty-three years after her death, Patsy Cline is still considered one of the top 5 female country singers of all time. Jazz Singer Maggie Worsdale pays tribute to this earthy innovative legend who put the Nashville sound on the map and who paved the way for future country singers. Maggie’s performance is loaded with 14 of Cline’s songs and little known stories about her life and career. An international artist, Maggie Worsdale has performed at many of the major concert halls, cabarets and jazz venues around the country and in Europe. She has released four studio albums and has appeared as a guest artist on three others. Cost is $ 20 for members $ 25 for non-members, 3 to 5 p.m.; Cultural Center of Cape Cod 307 Old Main St., South Yarmouth.
