The Legend of the Hag with Jess Lee
Be part of a special evening dedicated to one of the greatest artists in country music history – Merle Haggard. In “The Legend of the Hag”, JUNO-nominated singer Jess Lee will take you on a journey through Haggard’s incredible life and times through stories and songs. In a career that spanned six decades, Haggard rose from poverty and prison to international fame through his songs about outlaws, underdogs, the heart broken and the hard-living. Haggard wrote songs for the working class to drink to, to dance to and to cry to. He notched 40 No. 1 hits including “Working Man Blues”, “MamaTried”, “Silver Wings” and one of the most famous country songs of all time “Okie From Muskogee”. You will also hear stories from Haggard’s life which echoed the songs he sang – he was born poor, raised in a converted railway boxcar and turned 21 in prison before turning his life around to become a country music hero. “The Legend of The Hag” is a must-see for Haggard fans and music fans alike.
