Follow the brothers’ rise from humble country beginnings to the biggest duo act the world had ever seen, then their inevitable split and decade-long feud, to the magnificent reunion that gave them back to the world, and back to each other.
With “harmonies from heaven” that influenced The Beatles, The Beach Boys, and Simon & Garfunkel, The Everly Brothers were unmatched in their talent.
Director Peter John Jackson explained: “The Everly Brothers were an original and unique act that had a sound like nothing else. Their harmonies were so tight that every group wanted to emulate them. Before that, there was a singer, a band and backing vocals, The Everly’s entwined all of them and created ‘the harmony group’.”
International Everly Brothers Fan Club favourites, Luke and Aaron Wilson, star as the iconic brothers.
Producer Ollie Gray said: “Casting was a big challenge, as we felt it a must to have siblings playing Don and Phil, but after a long search we spotted two young brothers that were already honing their own tribute to the Everly Brothers. We were struck, not only by their vocal blend, but also their uncanny resemblance to Don and Phil Everly.”
Walk Right Back is the first show of its kind to tell this phenomenal story of two brothers and their unforgettable music. Also featuring songs from a couple of the Everly Brothers’ good friends, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison, Walk Right Back is surely a show not to be missed!
Performance: Wednesday 9 May 7.30pm, The Hawth Crawley. Tickets: £23, available from The Hawth Box Office: 01293 553636 and online: www.hawth.co.uk.
