WALT & JACKIE: LEGENDS ………………………………………
…………………………………………………………………………………

Sometimes when the right voices come together, unexpected magic happens – magic that just couldn’t exist any other way. That’s the kind of harmony that Walt Churchey and Jackie Kopco bring – as singers, instrumentalists, entertainers, and composers. Powerful vocalists and musicians in their own right, these two solo artists struck the perfect chord when they blended Jackie’s melodic range and soaring style with Walt’s raw passion and bold cadence for an unexpectedly original sound.

Their duo performances were an instant hit at venues in and around their homebase of Johnstown (where they’ve been voted the city’s best entertainers), and their shared passion for songwriting drove them to release a debut of original acoustic music in 2012. With the success of that album, “Bare,” in 2012 – and the ongoing invites to play at larger and larger venues like Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center and PPG Paints Arena – they knew they’d found something special. And so did music lovers. Their next two albums found an eager fan base and their latest show, “Legends,” is taking audiences across the tri-state area on a musical journey of original songs by Walt & Jackie, mixed with their distinct interpretations of pieces by powerful songwriters from the past half century – a dynamic, moving, and deeply satisfying performance from the first song to the last.

In Legends, their thoughtfully chosen cover songs and selections of original
compositions highlight both performers’ celebrated talents and versatility – with pacing and variety that keeps audiences entranced from the first song to the last and manages to deliver an experience that is exciting, poignant, and deeply satisfying in one unforgettable show.
