Fred is a solo singer and guitarist who performs #1 hits of Country and other genres. Fred’s early influences were all country music artists: Glen Campbell, Marty Robbins, Ronnie Milsap etc.

Tracey Wygal has gained equal recognition and praise, notably in her musical tribute to the country legend Patsy Cline. Her likeness to Cline’s unmistakable, robust voice has received accolades time and time again by many who knew the music legend personally. From Cline’s hometown of Winchester, Virginia to performance locations across the country, audience members have raved about the striking similarities between Cline and Wygal including precise inflections, bold and strong tone, and the emotional portrayal of the unforgettable artist. Joining Tracey for several selections will be Ted Pugh, noted guitarist and private instructor. Together they form the acoustic duo called “Blue Feather.”

Always Patsy Cline Fan Org.

Today is the anniversary of the plane accident that took the lives of three young musicians and their pilot. Singer-songwriter, Don McLean memorialized this Rock-N-Roll tragedy in his song "American Pie", recorded in 1971. The "Winter Dance Party" tour was scheduled for 24 cities in 24 days. Many of you probably know the story of these young men as their lives have been portrayed in two films- "The Buddy Holly Story" and "La Bamba". Friends, family and fans still gather each year at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa for a memorial concert to honor these four young men.

Please join us today as we remember Buddy Holly (aged 22), Ritchie Valens (aged 17), J.P. Richardson "The Big Bopper" (aged 28) and pilot Roger Peterson (aged 21). #BuddyHolly, #RitchieValens, #TheBigBopper, #SurfBallroom, #TheDayTheMusicDied

Today we are celebrating the anniversary of Patsy's birthday. Virginia Patterson Hensley was born Sept.8 in Winchester, Virginia in 1932.

Hilda Hensley once said in a 1982 interview, "I was sixteen years old when Patsy was born. All my life I'd had hand-me-downs. When she was born she was mine. We grew up together. We were hungry together." (Patsy Cline: The Making of an Icon, by Douglas Gomery) Always Patsy Cline Fan Org.
