Merle Haggard's Strangers featuring Ben and Noel Haggard
August 10 | 8 p.m.
For fans of his late, legendary father, country music great Merle Haggard, his youngest son Ben is no stranger – in fact, he’s been the lead guitarist in Hag’s longtime band since he was 15 years old, fitting in easily with veterans like musical director Norm Hamlet and Scott Joss.
This is just the beginning of his artistic journey, and he still has plenty of places to go, but he looks well-prepared to kick out the footlights in his own right.
Noel Haggard is also the son of iconic country music legend Merle Haggard. He sings natural phrasing with a richly sonorous baritone that one would expect from someone with such a loaded last name.
