SunLive Competition

In a concert where pop meets traditional country, Tennessee Waltz features award-winning songs from artists such as Doris Day, John Denver, Connie Francis, Kenny Rodgers and Dolly Parton.

Operatunity presents Tennessee Waltz, with a stellar cast including Karl Perigo, Suzanne Lynch, Marian Burns and Marian’s sister Karen Davy with a band.

Award-winning fiddler and entertainer, Marian, has featured in many of Operatunity’s Irish concerts. Now it is Tauranga’s chance to hear her play all the frenetic blue grass, Dixie, and country songs made famous in the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s.

The show also includes a spot by Karen as Dolly Parton, and a Kenny Rodgers lookalike will take to the stage, among others!

This was an era which saw many long-lasting, toe-tapping tunes with great sing-along lyrics come out of the States; songs such as Tennessee Waltz, Stand by your Man and Walk the Line.

The concert will be held on September 14 from 11am at Holy Trinity Church.
