‘Foolin’ Around: The Patsy Cline Songbook’ kicks off rebranded Unity Performing Arts Center

Unity of Bellevue has opened up the campus's stage to public performance for the 2014-2015 season.

Unity of Bellevue will resurrect country legend Patsy Cline next Friday when it hosts a cover concert.

Foolin’ Around: The Patsy Cline Songbook” (Brown Paper Tickets events page in the link) will be held in the church’s rebranded Unity Performing Arts Center on Sept. 5.

New York vocalist and entertainer Meg McLynn will perform nearly 30 songs from Cline’s repertoire, accompanied by the six-piece Purple Phoenix country band. The performance will be staged in the style of casino showrooms in the 1960s and ’70s.

Cline — famous for songs like “Walkin’ After Midnight,” “Faded Love” and “Sweet Dreams” — rose to fame in the late 1950s and ’60s and joined the cast of Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry in 1960. She died in a plane crash in 1963 at the age of 30.

“Foolin’ Around” is the first of a three-show celebrity songbook series that will include the works of Frank Sinatra in October and those of Nat King Cole in November.

Leadership at Unity of Bellevue, a church in the “New Thought” movement of Christianity, has opened up the campus’s stage to public performance for the 2014-2015 season. The Unity Performing Arts Center is a moderately sized venue with space for an audience of 300.
