Some people equate the word “radio” with FDR’s fireside chats, helter-skelter antennae and news broadcasts. Younger people may conjure up images of stereos and Sirius FM. Ken Hardley wants to bring back the former.
When country music legend K. D. Lang made her latest album with a whole new band, she called it Sing It Loud, and that is just what Chautauquans hope she will do tonight.
At 8 p.m. tonight, after having won more than four Grammys, having sung at the 2010 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony and having a career spanning more than 25 years, Lang is bringing the Siss Boom Bang to the Amphitheater stage for the first time.
Lang, who started her music career with a Patsy Cline cover band called k.d. lang and The Reclines in 1983, grew to popularity on her own as a country and pop artist known for her strong, crooning voice. Sing It Loud, released by k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang just last year, shows that Lang’s music is still going strong.
