Description

Louisiana Hayride Rides Again! Come Join us as we pay tribute to that magic period of country music where Western Swing, Texas Two-step, Cajun Waltzes, Kentucky Bluegrass, Tennessee Hillbilly, Southern Gospel and Memphis Rockabilly converged every Saturday Night in the Municipal Auditorium in Shreveport Louisiana from 1948-1960 and broadcast on KWKH with 50,000 watts of country power across the USA! It’s the musical incubator of artists like Jim Reeves, Webb Pierce, Faron Young, Johnny Horton, Bob Lumen and a whole heap more. Shreveport born and raised musicians that went on to become household names got their start on the Hayride – musicians like DJ Fontana, Floyd Cramer and James Burton. It was the show that made Elvis, Hank Williams and Kitty Wells Superstars! We love doing this show and bringing you the stories and lives behind the hits. It’s such a big part of country music history and the classic songs stand the test of time so well. Get dressed up in your western/rockabilly duds (or come as you are) and book a great night of country culture at Leichhardt Bowlo – Sat 25 Feb 8pm!
