The video for “Let’s Gather Together” will soon be up on youtube.com. It includes some very special pictures of family, friends and memories. This song was written for the Hillbilly HotSpot Theatre Show that will be opening on May 9th in Abilene, Kansas.
We’re also excited about a fun video Hillbilly HotSpot production that will be on youtube.com in the near future. There’s more news to come…I’ll be posting show times soon, but you can also find more information at www.greatplainstheatre.com. The show runs from May 9th – 19th.
We’ve had a great time working on the Hillbilly HotSpot theatre project. It’s been a new adventure into a musical Hillbilly terrain. Though I was raised on a farm in Kansas and we lived mostly off the land, the hillbilly brand is a different dimension of “country”.
When I came up with the title “Hillbilly HotSpot” the theme song fell right into place with the show concept. I was then asked if I would record it. Though I have never vocally ventured into singing this style of music, I am thankful for the opportunity to experience the hillbilly fun.
The show is an entertaining and humorous combination of music and comedy. I’m proud to have written and co-written 11 songs for the live show. The stage props, characters and the show script were created by Doug Thompson, of BDS Productions, who is also producing the “Hillbilly HotSpot” live theatre musical comedy premiering in May 2013. http://www.greatplainstheatre.com
