A Youngstown music legend and an aspiring country music star from Boardman will soon be appearing together at a high-profile Nashville venue featured on a popular TV show.
Phil Keaggy and Sarah Turner will perform at The Bluebird Café on May 4. They also will be joined by actress/singer/songwriter Kirsti Manna, a Poland native.
“We’re going to do a Youngstown theme (at the Bluebird),” said Turner, who now lives in Nashville. “It’s my first time performing there, but I have been there. It’s awesome.”
The Bluebird Café is often featured in the hit ABC series “Nashville.” According to the Bluebird’s website, it’s “one of the world’s preeminent listening rooms and has gained worldwide recognition as a songwriter’s performance space.”
Phil Keaggy was raised in Youngstown and gained fame locally as the guitar player for the band Glass Harp. Keaggy and Turner teamed up on one of Turner’s early songs titled “Youngstown.”
Also expected to perform at The Bluebird on May 4 are the Stella Sisters, Lennon and Maisy. They’re part of the cast of the TV show “Nashville,” playing the daughters of the show’s star character Rayna Jaymes, who is played by Connie Britton.
