A night of incredible classic country
Kassi Valazza’s songs are influenced by her childhood growing up in the vast open spaces of Arizona. Her lyrics portray dark stories of the west and a yearning for home. With the help of her talented band the music winds in and out of genres such as country, western and psychedelic rock.
While pulling from influences such as The Byrds, Lee Hazlewood and Iris Dement, Kassi and company create a distinctive sound that evokes a longing for simpler times full of heartache, deceit and tragic romance. Her heartrending lyrics and haunting melodies are made all the more so by her stirring vocals and captivating presence.
Pendleton’s James Dean Kindle and his Hyper-Modern Country Quartet will kick things off.
