Sat 22 Mar 8pm: THE STU THOMAS PARADOX presents “THE SONGS OF LEE HAZLEWOOD” – Lee Hazlewood was a maverick in the best sense of the word, a writer of hits for the likes of Nancy Sinatra and Duane Eddy, an inventive producer and a unique performer. Which is why Stu Thomas is bringing an all-star cast of musical talents to pay tribute to the man whose music ranged from cowboy minimalism to overblown brassy pop. Hear songs written by Lee, including “These Boots Were Made For Walkin’”, “Lady Bird”, "Some Velvet Morning", “Jackson”, “Sugar Town” and lots more in two sets of pretty darn magnificent music.
