Knoxville Highway

Country and Western fans should mosey on down to Bloxwich next month to catch Knoxville Highway on stage.

Retired Bloxwich police officer Bob Gessey will be coming back to his old stomping ground with his posse of Black Country cowboys on Saturday 3 March to perform at Bookmark Bloxwich Theatre in Elmore Row.

The six piece band is promising “a musical road trip across the heart and soul of Country and Western music” and is bringing the sound of Nashville into the borough.

The show features songs from Country greats such as Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Glenn Campbell and the Eagles right up to today’s modern country stars with a sprinkling of Blue Grass classics.

Doors open at 7.30pm with the show starting at 8.15pm.

Bob said: “It promises to be a great night.

“You wouldn’t normally see a line up like ours outside of Nashville – there’ll be something for everyone I’m sure.”

The event is presented by Bloxwich Library Forum as part of the Bookmark Bloxwich Live Music Review gig series.

Tickets cost just £5 and are available by contacting Bloxwich Library on 01922 655900.
