A special night of music comes to the Trinity Arts Centre in Gainsborough this weekend as the acclaimed Past Masters present American Legends with Andrew Morley as Buddy Holly.

Andrew played Buddy in the musical of the same name that toured world-wide to great acclaim.

But sadly his stint as the legendary singer was shortened due to illness.

But he is able to take on one-night turns as the great man, as his in Gainsborough this weekend.

The show will feature many of Buddy’s great hits, surrounded by classic songs and tunes from The Everley Brothers, Eddie Cochran, Dion, Richie Valens, The Big Bopper, Del Shannon, Neil Sedaka, Elvis, The Ventures, Duane Eddy and many more of the top American artistes who were popular at that time.

The show will come to a climax with a near reproduction of the fateful Winter Dance Party gig on the night that Buddy Holly was killed along with J.P.Richardson (The Big Bopper) and Richie Valens in a plane crash.

Past Masters are well known for their live concert shows playing the best of rock & roll from the 1950s and 1960s and this promises to be more of the same.

Some of the best tunes from some of the best artists of the era will be aired on a night when the music lives again.

The show takes place on Saturday night (13th June) at 7.30pm.

Tickets priced £15 are available on 01427 676655 or www.trinityarts.co.uk
