Country Music Comes To St. Ignatius

St. Ignatius Martyr is hosting a tribute concert “Live From Nashville – Country Legends” on April 6, 2018 at 7:30 pm at the Long Beach Catholic Regional School.  

We expect an audience of 500 persons for this cast of 10 performers who will take us on a country music journey for both young and old, a fitting tribute to such stars as Patsy Cline, Hank Williams and Johnny Cash and many others through the present with Kenny Chesney, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift and Blake Shelton.
