Gerle Haggard, the city’s own all-female Merle Haggard Tribute group, will showcase the more bluesy side of Haggard’s music Saturday November 16 at the Blue Diamond, 2016 NE Sandy Blvd. beginning at 6 pm.
The Gerles introduce the country legend’s well-known hits and early work to new audiences while surprising lifelong fans with obscure lesser-known songs too.
Expect covers from Bob Wills, Lefty Frizzell and Dolly Parton too with storytelling wrapped in their spirited take on the classic Bakersfield Sound of good ol’ country music.
Accomplished band members are from diverse musical backgrounds and weave original instrumentation, tight harmonies, and down home authenticity into a feel-good concert of music.
Earlier this year, The Gerles were invited to play the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame in Muskogee, OK and are now among the top five most attended events of all time at that venue.
The show is open to 21+ over. Tickets at the door $15 with reserved group seating available at 503.230.9590.
