Group Description

WELKCOME everyone to the Yahoo! group dedicated to the lovely and talented Gail Farrell, singer, songwriter and pianist from television's The Lawrence Welk Show.

Raised in Durant, Oklahoma; the former Miss Oklahoma paegant contestant and graduate of the University of Tulsa joined the Welk music makers in 1969 as a result of a tag dance with the maestro, where he and his orchestra were performing at the famous Hollywood Palladium. On the 1969-70 season opened, she sang her first number, "Downtown" which the audiences liked a lot.

Until the show ended in 1982, Gail sang her share of solos, choral and group numbers and was a part of many acts; as a duo with Mary Lou Metzger, with Dick Dale as "Gail & Dale", the trio of Gail, Sandi (Griffiths) & Mary Lou and later the mixed trio of Gail, Ron and Michael featuring her husband Ron Anderson and friend Michael Redman. She continues to perform to this day, and has a list of credits in both recording, television and the silver screen...but her proudest legacy is her twin daughters, Erin and Lauren (born in 1982).

This is a family-friendly group: NO SPAM, NO NUDITY, OR ANY TYPE OF VULGARITY AS ALLOWED! Any breach of that is subject to immediate dismissal.

This is where all Welk and Gail Farrell fans can meet, share memories, pictures and thoughts...just remember to have a GOOD TIME!
