For a small town Shelburne Ontario is packing in a great tribute act covering Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. It is a huge task trying to recreate the experience of a pair of extremely well-know performers who have sold more than 200 million albums. Actually, make that two tasks: choosing which of the long string of hits to showcase in a two-hour show. I’m glad I don’t have that make that choice.
When Marty Edwards and Marie Bottrell come to Shelburne tonight they will have that all figured out prior to hitting the Grace Tipling Hall tonight for their concert, “Kenny and Dolly: Together Again.”
From my understanding Edwards has been doing Kenny Rogers tributes since 1998. Based in Las Vegas, he’s taken his act around the globe, and has appeared on Oprah, the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and CNN.
Canadian country music legend Marie Bottrell will be making her first appearance as Dolly Parton. With a total of 18 top-40 radio hits, Bottrell is an eight-time Juno nominee and a two-time CCMA Female Vocalist of the Year. She was inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame in September 2010. Wow, Shelburne, I think your in for a treat tonight if you like country music 🙂
There’s hardly anybody who doesn’t know who Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton are so the expectation have been set I think. It’s all about the music and getting it just right. It’s should be a fun experience. If they’re smiling and singing along and tapping their feet, then they have accomplished their Job.
The show will feature a list of her hits, including 9 to 5, Jolene, Coat of Many Colours and Will Always Love You. Narrowing down the choices must be the hard part but I a funny feeling your going to see Edwards singing the Gambler :). See Below
Growing up with a father that liked Willie Nelson among other I remember listening to her while driving with my parents on hoses hot summer days 🙂 but it’s not summer and I’m no longer a kid but the memories live on.
Tickets can be purchased at Shelburne Town Hall or Holmes Appliance and Music Shop for $25.00
