Venue: Hotel Congress
Start Time: 7:00pm

Join Arizona Arts Live, Rhythm and Roots, Hotel Congress, and the Tucson Weekly for the first ever Tucson Opry variety show. Don’t miss an evening featuring performances from national favorites and local gems along with cowboy poetry and a surprise or two–all on the beautifully historic Hotel Congress stage!

The Small Glories
Powerhouse duo Cara Luft and JD Edwards are a musical partnership from the Canadian Prairies. With stage banter striking a balance between comedy and sermon, they have a way of making time disappear, rooms shrink, and audiences feel as if on stage. Their folk-pop music combines songs of love, loss, and environment with soaring vocals, a banjo, a guitar, and a harmonica. The duo has received multiple Canadian Folk Music Awards. They were also a 2020 JUNO Award nominee for traditional roots album of the year. 

Whitney Rose
If you love classic country you’ll want to saddle up for Whitney Rose. Her unique and soulful voice will have you swaying to perfectly blended pop-country retro music. Listening to her will transport you back in time to Nashville Studios in the late 1950’s and 60s. Her album, “ Rule 62” was rated an All Music Best Albums of 2017, Wide Open Country 25 Best Albums of 2017, and Yahoo! Music Best Country Albums of 2017.
