Singer Chely Wright Joins Seattle Women’s Chorus for “True Country”
Seattle Women’s Chorus celebrates female country music legends like Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton, Martina McBride, Dixie Chicks, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, and Anne Murray in their production of True Country, Saturday and Sunday, October 1 and 2, at Benaroya Hall.
Add to this illustrious line-up of standout performers SWC’s special guest artist, singer-songwriter Chely Wright. Wish Me Away, a new documentary film about Wright’s courageous decision to come out as a lesbian within the conservative world of country music recently won “Best Documentary” at the Nashville Film Festival. Backed by the rich harmonies of Seattle Women’s Chorus, Chely Wright will share her unforgettable story and her unmistakable musical talent.
True Country will be hosted by the semi-popular mother-daughter Country duo Euomi and Wynotta Spudd (The Spudds), bringing their songs and down-home dysfunction. The Spudds are the creation of outrageous Seattle kamikaze comedy duo, Lisa Koch and Peggy Platt (Dos Fallopia).
