Experience a country music legend with Hank Williams Live 1952
On Friday, November 18 at 7:30 p.m., accomplished actor and singer Joe Matheson will perform Hank Williams Live 1952 at the Fredericton Playhouse.
Regarded as one of the most significant and influential singer-songwriters of the 20th century, Hank Williams is known for hits like “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” “Hey, Good Lookin’” and “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.” While he passed away at the age of 29 in 1953, his legacy lives on, as he continues to have an impact on country artists to this day.
Joe Matheson has been called “the quintessential voice of Hank Williams.” During this fully scripted musical theatre performance, you’ll be treated to all of Williams’ hits, as well as some of the great stories from his short but eventful life.
