Chase Padgett's

Nashville Hurricane: A Curious Tale of Fingerpickin’ Fury

40 years ago, a mysterious acoustic guitarist appeared from nowhere, conquered the music industry, and vanished without a trace… until now.

Fresh off the heels of his smash hit 6 Guitars, virtuoso actor and musician Chase Padgett becomes a manager, a mother, a mentor, and the guitar prodigy, as each one tells their side of the rise, demise, and resurrection of the best damn guitar player you’ve never heard of - the Nashville Hurricane.

During the course of this one man masterpiece, the audience learns about Henry Waltrip (the Nashville Hurricane). From his humble trailer park beginnings alongside his white trash mother, Brenda, to the crazy gigs on the road with his blues playing mentor, Tyrone. The stories and songs unfold into hilarious rants on love and music, a riveting tale involving the dark side of show biz, and blazing guitar work any audience is sure to rave about, such as the finale; a one man acoustic “Devil Went Down to Georgia”.

Running time is 75 minutes with no intermission.

“Nashville Hurricane is a force of nature. Don’t let it pass by without you.” – CBC
