Kent-Meridian Performing Arts Center

Lavay Smith and her all-star 7-piece jazz band deliver a loving and creative tribute to country darling Patsy Cline. Jazz and country music have been "kissing cousins" since each art form took shape in the early 20th century. Lavay Smith knows this history well and brings a bluesy jolt of energy to the jazz/country crossroads, delivering jazz and blues-steeped arranged arrangements of Cline's songs. The show features Lavay's scorching Red Hot Skillet Lickers. With her big, luscious voice and sassy stage presence, Lavay infuses sultry swing into Cline's tales of woe.
