Russ Wever plays the steel guitar, the instrument that puts the “cry” and the “moan” into Hank Williams’ music. He is pleased to be appearing in UNA Summer Theatre’s production of Hank Williams: Lost Highway.
Wever’s musical career has spanned over forty years. He has performed at The Grand Ole Opry, is a favorite at the annual International Steel Guitar Convention, and has appeared in numerous musical theatre productions, including the Off-Broadway production of Hank Williams: Lost Highway.
When not performing in musical theatre, Wever is a popular performer at various steel guitar concerts throughout the country. Born and raised near Chicago, Wever and his lovely wife Carla currently reside in Kansas City.
