FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Geoff Steele, Artist & Promotions Manager
Branson, Missouri – August 28, 2012 – Legendary performer Roy Clark returns to Branson and the world famous Highway 76 with matinee performances on select dates at the Baldknobbers Jamboree Theatre beginning Wednesday, September 5, 2012.
Clark is one of the world’s finest multi-instrumentalists and one of the first artists to land singles on both the pop and country charts. His talents turned “Hee Haw” into the longest running syndicated show in television history – 25 years. He has won multiple CMA Awards, ACM Awards and a Grammy Award as well as being on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Guitar Player magazine Hall of Fame. In 2009
Clark was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Clark’s has had ties to Branson longer than any national recording artist – opening his own theater on Highway 76 in 1984. Even after selling that property and returning to active touring has found his way back to Branson and strong audiences. Now Branson’s first national star has a new home, back on Highway 76, ironically at the home of Branson’s very first show – the Baldknobbers Jamboree. “The opportunity to bring a performer the caliber of Roy Clark to the Baldknobbers Theatre for these
select dates is a perfect fit for us. The Baldknobbers focus has consistently been on musical integrity. The band is as good as it gets, not just in Branson, but anywhere. To add a performer of Roy’s stature to this stage is going to be fun – and the audience will never know what to expect when you put these two acts in the same place.” said Tim Mabe, the Baldknobbers producer who doubles as comedian Droopy
Drawers, Junior on stage.
The Baldknobbers Jamboree began the Branson entertainment phenomenon on the lakefront in 1959. They have been synonymous with Branson, from performing opening day of Silver Dollar City, to being recognized and placed on permanent display in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. where they were recognized for their contribution to American culture.
Roy Clark will perform Wednesday through Saturday, September 5-8 and September 12-15. Clark will return to the Baldknobbers in November, performing Saturday and Sunday, November 3-4, Wednesday-Saturday, November 7-10, November 29-December 1 and December 5-8. All performances are at 3PM. For information on Roy Clark visit online at www.royclark.org
