Coal Miners Daughter
Thu 8 February 2024, at 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Multi-awarded, look-alike songstress, Amber Joy Poulton, brings Coal Miner’s Daughter – the mega-hits and stories of inspirational pioneer and superstar Loretta Lynn, to Australia following a sold-out national tour run in 2017 and again in 2022.
Coal Miner’s Daughter includes ‘friends’ Lizzie Moore as Patsy Cline and Denis Surmon as Conway Twitty accompanied by The Holy Men, in this sensational musical tribute to three legends in country music.
Weaving anecdotes and comedy through a traditional and contemporary catalogue of hits, including Coal Miner’s Daughter, Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin’ With Lovin’ On Your Mind, I Fall To Pieces, You Ain’t Woman Enough To Take My Man, Crazy, Silver Threads & Golden Needles, Walkin’ After Midnight, You’re Lookin’ At Country, One’s On The Way, Stand By Your Man, After The Fire Is Gone and more. This is a show not to be missed and with the recent passing of the great Loretta Lynn, there is no better time to celebrate her music.
The What’s On calendar covers arts and heritage events happening across the NSW Central West in the local government areas of Bathurst Region, Blayney, Cabonne, Cowra, Forbes, Lachlan, Lithgow, Mid-Western Region, Oberon, Orange, Parkes and Weddin.
