Now That’s What I Call Country

Friday Friday 27 March 2020
Venue: Hawk's Well Theatre

In light of the COVID-19 restrictions please check with the event organiser for latest updates.

Featuring 20 songs from the hit compilation album 'Now That’s What I Call Country Music' and featuring the six-piece virtuoso country band The Lonesome Wheelers.

This is a journey through the last 100 years of country music where the audience get to pick which songs are played via a giant wagon wheel of fortune - a spinning songbook featuring the country classics from the ‘Now’ compilation.

There will be full audience participation each night where the audience ‘write’ a song with the band drawing on their personal experiences which they share on the night.

This is a laugh out loud, feel good gig with a history of the country song thrown in. The audience will be dancing in the aisles, shedding a tear in tender moments and will leave with a song (that they have co-written) in their hearts. Now That’s What I Call Country Music!

The producer Ian Brown was nominated for an Ivor Novello Award in 2007 for co-writing the world wide number one hit ‘I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker’ and co-wrote the lead song in the long running musical and album series Dreamboats and Petticoats. He has also written songs for Fisherman’s Friends, Show Of Hands, Tom Baxter, Jason Donovan, D Side, Pixie Lott, Graham Gouldman, Henry Priestman, Simon Webbe, Drumsound & Bassline Smith and Don Diablo.

He is co producer of the new British movie ‘Fisherman’s Friends’ which was released on March 15th 2019. He was also music consultant for the country music film ‘Wild Rose’ starring Jessie Buckley and Julie Walters, which was released on April 19th 2019.
