Music fans are in for a real treat when Mike Farris & The Roseland Rhythm Revue roll into town for a performance at the Barkley Theatre on Oct. 4.
The nine-member ensemble, which includes female back-up vocalists and a horn section, has performed across the country and throughout Europe to widespread critical acclaim.
Mike Farris is one of the most impassioned vocalists performing today. He fuses old time Gospel with arrangements that intertwine his powerful vocals with Rock, Blues and his own brand of blue-eyed Soul. Festival appearances that year at Hardly Strictly, Telluride Bluegrass, Strawberry Festival, ACL Festival, Bonnaroo and many, many more s
His performances are a foot-stomping, soul-shaking, good old fashioned tent revival kind of thing. Farris was named New & Emerging Artist of the Year by the Americana Music Association. More information can be found at http://www.mikefarrismusic.com and you can see clips from performances at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qt8wiGInALs and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sks-HCkTG-c
Farris will also conduct a free and open-to-the public conversation on his music and influences at 3 p.m. in the Center’s Art Bar.
Tickets for the performance are on sale now, $17 for CAC members, $20 for non-members, and can be purchased at Jeff’s Copy Express and ITT @ NAS Fallon or by calling Churchill Arts at 775-423-1440.
