An old-fashioned traveling road show
The live music capital of the world meets Springfield this weekend during two special performances of Branson on the Road, Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m., at the Hoogland Center for the Arts. Branson on the Road has been a mainstay on Branson’s famous 76 County Music Boulevard, otherwise known as “The Strip” for the past 20 years, and is the first national touring performance named after the famous city. Written in the same tradition as the traveling road shows dating back to the heyday of the Grand Ol’ Opry, Branson on the Road delivers good, clean family fun, and will leave attendees “tapping, laughing and smiling.” The show contains a talented cast of performers including Debbie Horton, the only woman to have ever played lead guitar for Johnny Cash; Donnie Wright, a 40-year staple in the Branson music scene; and Brian Capps, an upright bass player and singer who recently reached the Top 10 on the Americana radio charts.
