Dixie presents exciting weekend

The Dixie Theatre in Apalachicola has a full slate of performances this weekend, beginning with Grammy-nominated Nashville singer-songwriter Gretchen Peters on Friday, Jan. 17 at 8 p.m. Her warm-honey voice and sophisticated lyrics assures an evening like no other.

On Saturday at 3 p.m., “The Old Folkie” Ken Sizemore returns for his 20th appearance at the Dixie with his easy style and wit, performing original tunes and classic favorites from the ‘50's, ‘60s and ‘70s. At 8 p.m. Saturday, Tony Sands makes his Dixie debut with “It Was A Very Good Year,” an uncanny portrayal of old blues eyes Frank Sinatra that takes the audience on a musical tribute journey that includes stunning video and graphics.

All tickets are $25. For more information call the theatre at 653-3200 or visit www.dixietheatre.com
