A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock and Soul

by Marcia Kash and Van Wilmott

The focus of this show is the connection between country and soul music and how the two met in the person of Elvis Presley—creating what then became rock and roll. This show has a female narrator, who is also part of the musical ensemble, and features some very popular country and soul music by artists such as Willie Nelson, Hank Snow, Patsy Cline, Elvis, Joni Mitchell, Dolly Parton, Fats Domino, Johnny Cash, Gladys Knight, and Gloria Estefan.  It played at the Mayfield Dinner Theatre for fourteen weeks from November 2000 to February 2001 to full houses and standing ovations.
