Ropetackle is very proud to present a rare chance to see Grammy-winning blues/soul/gospel/Americana star Mike Farris in concert, when he flies in direct from the USA to perform a short UK tour at selected venues to promote new album Silver and Stone. Farris is widely regarded as one of the most sincere and compelling performers around, who, in the words of top music publication ‘Rolling Stone’, possesses ‘a super-sized voice filled with the electricity of Saturday night and the godly grace of Sunday mornings.’
On the night, Mike will perform a sumptuous mix of originals as well as his own take on gospel and soul favourites to make this a truly unforgettable show.
“I truly believe that Mike Farris is one of the great artists of today. He sings the truth with a depth of feeling that warms my heart and touches my soul” — Bob Harris
“There aren’t many current male singers who use their voices to soar, float and deliver material with the spiritual commitment of Mike Farris.” Hal Horowitz, American Songwriter Magazine
“On the singalong ‘Snap Your Fingers’ and a touch cover of Willie Dixon’s blues gem “Let Me Love You Baby,” Farris takes us down to the river and washes us clean in spellbinding performances you’ll return to as soon as they’re over.” – American Songwriter
“With Silver & Stone, Farris has again delivered a simply superb album that shimmers and glistens with nuggets of genius and brilliance.” – Blues Matters
“Country and gospel music is in dire need of some pure heartfelt soul right now. [Farris] is like a secret weapon — he’s loaded with soul.” — Rolling Stone
Special Guest support will be UK’s own JAMIE FREEMAN who’s been described as ‘a songwriter matching the best’ by FATEA Magazine. Jamie will be performing songs from his new ‘Dreams About Falling’ album, produced in Nashville by Grammy nominee, Nelson Hubbard.
