Back by popular demand, Joni Morris will be in concert in her “Tribute to Patsy Cline” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Woodland Opera House, 340 Second St. in downtown Woodland.
Morris has been playing to sold-out crowds across the country for more than 15 years. She is best known for her portrayal of the queen of country music, Patsy Cline.
She began her career playing the fair circuit with her sister, Donna, as a vocal duo, the Morris Sisters. In 1993, she played Cline in a Columbia Actor’s Repertory production, “Always Patsy Cline.” She has appeared on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry and has shared the stage with such notable performers as Janie Fricke, The Gatlin Brothers and Glen Campbell.
She is accompanied by her Jordanaires-singing-style band, After Midnight, with Kevin Jachetta on keyboard, bass and vocals; Keith McKee on drums and vocals; and Fred Treece on lead guitar and vocals.
Morris adds comedy, eye-catching costumes and lots of audience interaction to each performance.
Her CD releases — “Heartsongs,” “Looking Back,” “Joni Morris Live” and her most recent, “Joni Morris – A Tribute to Legends” — will be available for sale after her performance.
Tickets are $20 each, available at the Woodland Opera House box office between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and 2 and 5 p.m. weekdays; by phone at (530) 666-9617; or online at www.woodlandoperahouse.org.
