A one-man musical theatre masterpiece: 4 characters, one guitar, blistering comedy and more

Chase Padgett brings his award-winning show Nashville Hurricane to Trail this Friday

A curious tale of fingerpickin’ fury, 40 years ago, a mysterious acoustic guitarist appeared from nowhere, conquered the music industry, and vanished without a trace… until now.

Fresh off the heels of his smash hit 6 Guitars, a big hit at The Bailey in 2017, virtuoso actor and musician Chase 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.

During the course of this show, the audience learns about 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 playing mentor, 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”.

Winner of the Best of the Fest at the Orlando and Edmonton Fringe Fests, the show is performed by Chase Padgett and written by Chase and Jay Hopkins for a show that takes you on a journey that is at times laugh-out-loud funny, and always mesmerizing and moving.
