UPDATE: Laughing ladies and country artists nearly sell out Vernon venue

Alan Doyle and I Am Woman, Hear Me Laff! back-to-back almost sold out

Two upcoming Vernon shows are close to being sold out.

I Am Woman, Hear Me Laff! and Alan Doyle go back to back March 6 and 7 at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre.

The intimate venue is already sold out for Doyle, and hopeful fans remain on a waitlist, while a few tickets are available for I Am Woman.

Headliner Susan Rice is expected to have the audience in hysterics for the 16th annual celebration of International Women’s Day Friday, March 6.

I Am Woman, Hear Me Laff! is a returning show to Vernon and features mature content.

Doyle, the former Great Big Sea lead vocalist, brings his Rough Side Out Tour to the stage Saturday, March 7.

“This EP is a collection of songs I wrote and/or recorded with some of my favourite writers and dearest friends working primarily in the Canadian country music world these days,” Doyle said.

“There’s a country feel that is new for me and yet these songs are undeniably tied to my traditional Celtic home on an Island in the sea. You can take the Boy out of the Bay, but… well, you know.”

Special guest March 7 is Kelly Prescott, a third-generation singer-songwriter who grew up between a tour bus and recording studio steeped in traditional country music. Prescott’s latest single, Church, was released Feb. 14.

Tickets can be purchased online at ticketseller.ca until they’re gone.
