Willie Nelson band to play Filey twice

The country sounds of Willie Nelson will reverberate around a couple of venues in Filey this year.

Full Nelson are to play at the Dragonfest fundraiser at Filey’s Evron Centre on 27 April and in the town’s country park on 28 July.

Celebrating one of country music's greatest songsmiths, Full Nelson are on a mission to play the highlights of Nelson's 83-year life and 60-year career.

The band perform Nelson classics including On the Road Again (not to be confused with Canned Heat’s song of the same name), Always on my Mind (a big hit for Elvis Presley), Whiskey River, City of New Orleans and Crazy, written for Patsy Cline.

The band has been building a solid reputation for its shows over the last few years, performing in theatres, country festivals and halls near and far.

Gary Luntley, as Willie, is joined by Joe Dunn on bass, Ian James on drums and vocals, Al Lawrence playing harmonica and John Dickinson on keyboards.
