Lonny Frost posted a calendar event in Community CalendarOn Thursday, December 21 at 7:30 p.m., the Deane Center for the Performing Arts and KC101.5 will present Penny Eckman, “The voice of Patsy Cline" in concert at the Coolidge Theatre at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro. This popular entertainer will sing holiday favorites. Among them will be "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," "White Christmas" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas. She will also perform Patsy Cline songs such as "Sweet Dreams," "Crazy" and Walkin' After Midnight." Eckman started singing at an early age. A professional singer with over 35 years of experience, she has been performing country rock to classic rock from the late 1970s through today. She formed the rock band Shylock Foxx in 1990 and in 2013 created her blues band, Penny and the Shylocks. She also performs blues and classic rock with keyboardist Mick Collins. "Penny is great in front of an audience and can sing like nobody else in this area," said Hamilton-Gibson Artistic Director Thomas Putnam. "Our relationship with Penny began when she auditioned for the lead role in 'Always, Patsy Cline,' an H-G musical production. She won that role over 20 singers. She knew how to dig into Patsy’s style and yet make the songs her own,” said Putnam. Eckman went on to develop her own one woman show “Penny Sings Patsy” and has since performed Cline’s music at well over 200 concerts in multiple venues up and down the East Coast and into the Midwest. "We've done other musicals with Penny since then," Putnam said. "She has played Mama Rose in 'Gypsy,' Sophie Tucker and Mame. She's also performed in our Leading Ladies concerts, singing the signature songs of many top-notch vocalists. Penny is versatile. People are amazed by the wide range of styles she can handle," Putnam concluded. Audience members are welcome to bring beverages and snacks. Seating will be cabaret-style. Tickets are $15.
