Louise Harrison was 11 in 1943 when she met her 8-hour-old brother George. "He didn’t have much hair, and he didn’t have many teeth, but I loved him," she remembers. "Once he grew up and learned to play the guitar, many more people loved him. But I loved him before all that."

The band Liverpool Legends, performing in Sherman Friday night, grew out of Harrison’s love for her brother and the music he made as a member of The Beatles.


Liverpool Legends is a Beatles tribute put together by Louise Harrison in 2005. The group has been a popular attraction in Branson for eight years and toured everywhere from Abbey Road to Israel. In 2012, they received a Grammy nomination for their work on the album "Fab Fan Memories: a Beatles Bond."


According to Marty Scott, who plays the role of George in the band, the evening will be "a little bit concert, a little bit Beatles history."


The show follows the career of the Beatles year by year, from the band’s early days in Liverpool through their solo work. Louise Harrison provides narration, including background information and memories from her own time with the Beatles.


Vintage instruments, elaborate costumes and spontaneous on-stage banter are hallmarks of the group’s authentic Beatles feel, Louise Harrison noted. "I know," she added, "because I was around with the real ones."


"We found a group of guys who look like the Beatles, they sound like the Beatles, but most important of all, if George were still here on this planet, these are the kind of guys George would hang out with," said Louise Harrison.


The main goal of the group, she said, is to spread the joy that her brother’s work brought to so many.


"We are just fans," said Scott. "We love the music."


Louise Harrison remembers her parents sitting around the table as the Beatles were rising to fame, answering hundreds of fan letters. "The world has given my family so much love over the last 50 years. I’m trying to give back that love."


The concert is part of the Community Series which, in partnership with Austin College, has brought live music to the Texoma area for 47 years. The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Kidd-Key Auditorium in downtown Sherman. Tickets are available online.
