Island Jubilee: Hank Williams Special

Ft Lawrence Maxwell

The Island Jubilee welcomes Lawrence Maxwell on December 31 to celebrate the music of Hank Williams, one of country music’s most influential singer songwriters of all time. This year marks the 100th anniversary of Williams’s birth, and the 70th anniversary of his passing. Hank died at age 29 but the musical legacy he left behind remains one of the most iconic works in any music genre. On his Grand Ole Opry debut in 1949, Hank received six encores for his song “Lovesick Blues.” The Island Jubilee will try to recreate this excitement on stage at Florence Simmons Performance Hall in Charlottetown on New Year’s Eve at 2 pm. Co-hosted by Nudie, Janet McGarry and Serge Bernard, the show’s house band includes Thomas Webb (steel guitar), Bobby McIsaac (acoustic/electric guitar), Courtney Hogan-Chandler (fiddle), Johnny Ross (piano), as well as Nudie (bass) and Serge (guitar/banjo/mandolin).
