LINDSAY – Throw on some boots and grab a lasso because a Tulare County musician is heading back from Nashville to perform her award winning country hits at the Lindsay Community Theater.

On Sept. 9, Lindsay residents can go see Juni Fisher — a former horse rider and trainer born and raised in Strathmore — at the Lindsay Theater for her ninth time. The performance will begin at 7:20 p.m. and residents are encouraged to buy tickets beforehand.

“This year, our concerts are going to be $20, which is our normal price if they buy in advance online,” said Jim Kliegl, the theater’s manager. “It (will now be) $25 if they come and buy tickets at the door.”

According to Kliegl, this is to encourage residents to buy tickets ahead of time so the theater can get a proper sense of how many people will be attending the show.

Those who attended Fisher’s last concert may also notice another change: the date of the event. Fisher’s last few performances have occurred around Valentine’s Day, which has changed this year as the award winning singer would rather perform before the weather turns, according to Kliegal.

“She decided that she didn’t want to come out in the winter anymore because of the weather, as sometimes it’s not very good,” Kliegl said. “She wanted to schedule it earlier (in the season) and we had September open, so we booked her in September.”

Regardless of when the show takes place, residents who attended her past concerts can expect to hear her classics, as well as a few new songs and covers.

“She’s just a great entertainer,” Kliegl said. “There’ll be some of the old standards that she usually does, and there’ll be some new material, I’m sure.”

Even if someone isn’t a country fan, the concert will not only be a fun way to spend the evening, but it will also help support the theater so more events like this can happen in the future.

“We have 350 seats, so it’s very rare that we sell anything out,” Kliegl said. “ If we (even) had 150 people there, that would be great.”

Tickets can be purchased on the Lindsay Community Theater website. For more information on Juni, be it her various awards or storied background, you can check out her website.
