She has performed all over the United States as a headliner as well as an opening act for many of Nashville’s leading entertainers such as Tim McGraw, Charlie Daniels, Loretta Lynn and too many more to mention.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear Josie Waverly sing Patsy Cline songs and other favorites on her debut in Oswego County.

The concert will start at 6 p.m. with Mexico’s own Emelee Harrington singing “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

She has thrilled crowds at a multitude of venues in Central New York, including singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the NYS Fair.

She will be followed by the CNY Alphorns.

Alphorns are the 13-foot long wooden horns seen frequently in Ricola cough drop commercials.

The wooden signal horns were common throughout Europe during the medieval period, but it was in the mountainous regions of Switzerland where they reached their current length.

The members of  CNY Alphorns come from several Upstate NY counties and have performed at Swiss and German festivals.
