Emma Leigh to join lineup for River City Radio Hour
The anniversary performance of the Radio Hour will feature Emma Leigh and the River City Boys at the Friday, Oct. 21 performances at the Gateway. Joining them will be the Boogie Kings, Marsha Howard and Chapter Tree of Night Hawk and Murder Down on the Farm by Bob Crawford.
The River City Boys will have their premiere performance on the Radio Hour.
Emma Leigh (aka. Emily Henline) will return to the Radio Hour. She was previously billed as “the Little Girl with the Big Voice” and is now the young lady with the great voice. And one might add with a new professional name. At 14 years old, Emma has already built a career as a vocalist on WHSV-TV’s “Virginia Dreams CenterStage”, a regional TV show that promotes local talent in the Shenandoah Valley.
The ever-popular Boogie Kings under the direction of the multi-talented Richard Adams will once again perform as the studio band. William Hayes with his amazing keyboard skills and J. T. Fauber on percussion complete the trio.
Waynesboro’s First Lady of Laughter, Marsha Howard, has been collecting jokes from her fans. “Unfortunately,” she said, “I cannot tell them in public.” Hear what she can tell at the October performances.
Bob Lunger returns as the Night Hawk in the third chapter of Night Hawk and Murder Down on the Farm. In the last chapter, the Night Hawk was forced off the road and into the farm’s pond with no rescue in sight.
The guest of the month will be Janet Harvey, Executive Director of the Waynesboro Area Learning Tree.
Tickets for the Radio Hour are $10. Food and beverages will be available. Reservations are available online at www.waynesborogateway.com. Patrons can also call toll free 877-840-0457.
