Country music fans are in for a treat with Coal Miner’s Daughter touring to the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre following a sold-out national tour in 2022.
Multi-awarded, look-alike songstress Amber Joy Poulton delivers the mega-hits and stories of inspirational pioneer and superstar Loretta Lynne, in the Coal Miner’s Daughter show.
Amber said they were so thrilled to bring Coal Miner’s Daughter to Bundaberg.
“It’ll be the perfect backdrop for the audience to step back in time and pretend they’re in the Grand Ole Opry,” Amber said.
Amber said she was enchanted by traditional classics and how country music used to be, and she would harnesses this passion into channelling Loretta.
After touring extensively and delighting audiences in Australia and overseas including Nashville, Amber makes a yearly trek to perform at Tamworth and other country music festivals including the Gympie Music Muster.
Anecdotes and comedy are woven through the traditional and contemporary catalogue of hits, including Coal Miner’s Daughter, I Fall to Pieces, Crazy, Silver Thread and Golden Needles, Walkin’ After Midnight and Stand by Your Man.
As a country musician Loretta Lynn came to the attention of her idol Patsy Cline and their close friendship is beautifully portrayed in this show, with Cline played by singer Lizzie Moore.
Conway Twitty is also featured and performed by Denis Surmon, with the talented Holy Men band backing the amazing line up.
“Being on stage as Loretta is the most electrifying feeling and when I get to introduce Loretta's best friend and country music legend Patsy Cline to the stage, I get to see the faces of the audience light up,” Amber said.
“Everyone loves Patsy and not forgetting Conway Twitty who Loretta' enjoys several duets with during the show.
“The theatre show also features songs by Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette, Willie Nelson, Conway Twitty and more.”
A year on from the great Loretta Lynn’s passing in 2022, the Coal Miner’s Daughter is a show not to be missed to celebrate her music.
