Facebook Live: Tennessee Walt’s A Distant Country 2
Saturday, May 2 | 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm | add to Google Calendar
This is a Facebook Live event: https://www.facebook.com/tennesseewalt
Back on April 4, in the early days of the coronavirus lockdown, the Long Island-based country singer Tennessee Walt took to the internet for “A Distant Country,” a live-streamed concert honoring the public libraries of Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester counties. Thrown together on less than a week’s notice, the event proved to be an outstanding success, drawing 535 live viewers and more than 1,200 overall on Facebook and YouTube.
The lockdown has continued, and on Saturday, May 2, at 2 p.m., Walt will return with “Tennessee Walt’s A Distant Country 2,” a second concert to honor the region’s libraries and encourage contributions in their time of need. The program will include songs associated with Hank Williams, the Carter Family, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Hank Snow, Kitty Wells and Tammy Wynette, along with a few Walt originals, plus interesting anecdotes about the songs and the artists who created them. Viewers can find the concert at Facebook.com/TennesseeWalt, live, at 2 p.m.
Those not on Facebook can see the show on YouTube within 24 hours afterward. For further information, visit www.tennesseewalt.com.
