Lonesome Sky's Repertoire

The Lonesome Sky Rockabilly Blues Roadshow repertoire consists mainly of hits from the Billboard Hot 100 from the 50's, 60's, and 70's. There is also a good variety of Christmas and other celebration songs to lend a festive spirit to special events. Lonesome Sky’s repertoire consists of over four and a half solid hours of music (more than 100 songs) from country, rock and blues artists.

   

Songs actually performed at a particular show are chosen based on show requirements and the type of audience. The selections are carefully chosen to evoke a nostalgic feeling and to get toes tapping. The performance is very lively and well-rehearsed and includes appealing harmonies on the vocals.

   

Songs are listed sorted by several different criteria to make things easier for you.

The first section is sorted alphabetically by song name.

The second section is sorted alphabetically by artist.

The third section is sorted by the year of the song.
