SEAVIEW, Wash. — Gerle Haggard returns to the Washington coast and the historic Sou’Wester Lodge this weekend. On Saturday, Feb. 18, this eight-piece ensemble will perform a post-Valentine’s Day sweetheart show for music lovers in the lodge’s intimate parlor room. The show starts at 8 p.m.

This marks the fifth appearance of the all-female Merle Haggard tribute band to the Seaview venue on the Long Beach Peninsula.

Gerle Haggard Band brings the best of Merle Haggard’s timeless music to audiences who’ve been loving songs like “Mama Tried,” “Misery and Gin” and “Working Man Blues” for nearly five decades, as well as introducing these and many more classics to a whole new audience. Old and new outlaw country listeners will enjoy hearing pepperings of The Hag’s more obscure singles as well as carefully chosen covers of some of his own idols: Bob Wills, Jimmie Rodgers and Lefty Frizzell.

The band’s original instrumentation, tight harmonies and a mix of showmanship from lead singer Tave Fasce Drake are woven together.

This appearance will feature national fiddle champ Aarun Carter who brings her own finesse to these classic country songs.

The show is free and open to the public. The Sou’wester Lodge is located at 3728 J Place. For more information, call 360-642-2542.
