E2: Chase Padgett: Nashville Hurricane

February 7 7:30 to 8:45 pm

Fresh off the heels of his smash hit ‘6 Guitars,’ virtuoso actor and musician Chase Padgett tells this curious tale of fingerpickin’ fury about a mysterious acoustic guitarist who appeared from nowhere, conquered the music industry, and vanished without a trace 40 years ago … until now.

This one man masterpiece tells the story of Henry Waltrip (the Nashville Hurricane) from his humble trailer park beginnings alongside his white trash mother, Brenda to the crazy gigs on the road with his blues playingmentor, Tyrone. The stories and songs unfold into hilarious rants on love and music, a riveting tale involving the dark side of show biz, and blazing guitar work any audience is sure to rave about such as the finale; a one man acoustic ‘Devil Went Down to Georgia”.

During the show Padgett becomes a manager, a mother, a mentor, and the guitar prodigy himself as each one tells their side of the rise, demise, and resurrection of the best damn guitar player you’ve never heard of; the Nashville Hurricane.

“Nashville Hurricane is a force of nature. Don’t let it pass by without you.” – CBC

“Padgett had the audience hanging on every note and word.” - Winnipeg Free Press
