Being Hank & Patsy kicks off new Townships performance series

Expressions Series live shows spotlight the culture of the region’s English-speaking community

SHERBROOKE, October 10, 2017 – Non-profit organization Townshippers’ Association announces the launch of the Expressions Series, a new performance series that will give a stage to creative and talented local arts from the Eastern Townships English-speaking community.

Since 1979, Townshippers’ has been working to strengthen the cultural identity of the region’s English-speaking community through events, festivals and its Townships Expressions project, a digital, in-office and pop-up shop that gives the public access to more than 100 unique items which have been created by local talent or that showcases the beauty of our region.

Under the new Expressions Series, community members will have a chance to discover and experience live performances by talented homegrown artists, musicians, and writers, who are part of the Townships Expressions collection, at intimate local venues, while directly supporting the featured artists. 
For its premiere season, the Expressions Series presents two performances.

Being Hank & Patsy by Laura Teasdale will launch the series with a one-night-only show on Saturday, October 21, 2017, 7:30 pm at Bandeen Hall, Bishop’s University (2600 College, Sherbrooke). Presented by Path Productions, Being Hank & Patsy, is a musical memoire written by Laura Teasdale. Come follow actors, Ralph Steiner and Laura Teasdale as they find themselves becoming Hank Williams and Patsy Cline.  See how they fall in love with those characters and in (and out) of love with each other.  Hear as they sing our favourite Hank & Patsy classics and a few tunes that brought them together backstage too.  Taste heartbreak in that country song kinda way. Feel the power of great music to tear folks apart, and knit them back together.

Keenan Wilcox will return to Bandeen Hall on Saturday, November 25, 2017, with his rich vocals to warm you up before the coming winter.  Details coming soon.

Tickets to each of the 2017 series shows will be sold at the door at $10 for Townshippers’ members, and $15 regular admission. Regular admissions include a one-year digital membership to Townshippers’ Association giving ticketholders lower prices at future Townshippers’ events. 

The Expressions Series is made possible with the financial support of Cass funeral homes, Global Excel Management, Mr. Luc Fortin, Member for Sherbrooke and Minister responsible for the Estrie region, Townshippers’ Foundation, and the Ville de Sherbrooke (Borough of Lennoxville). This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.
