Chase Padgett in Nashville Hurricane

  • Gesa Power House Theatre 111 North 6th Avenue Walla Walla, WA, 99362 United States (map)

About 40 years ago, a mysterious acoustic guitarist appeared from nowhere, conquered the music industry, and vanished without a trace… until now. Chase Padgett becomes a manager, a mother, a mentor, and the guitar prodigy himself as each one tells their side of the rise, demise, and resurrection of the best guitar player you’ve never heard of: the Nashville Hurricane.

During the course of this one-man masterpiece, the audience learns about Henry Waltrip (the Nashville Hurricane) from his humble trailer park beginnings with his mother, Brenda, to crazy gigs on the road with his blues-playing mentor, Tyrone. The stories and songs unfold into hilarious rants on love and music, a riveting tale involving the dark side of show biz, and blazing guitar work leading up to the finale: a one-man acoustic rendition of “Devil Went Down to Georgia.”
