1927 Society Concert Series: Mike Farris
January 29 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Birthplace of Country Music is proud to present the Friends of 1927 Concert Series featuring the Grammy Award-winning artist Mike Farris.
In 2015 Mike Farris became the first artist to receive a Grammy Award for Best Roots Gospel Album for his release Shine for All the People. Known as a powerhouse vocalist with blue-eyed soul, Farris also earned the Americana Music Award and the Dove Award. He has also performed at Bonnaroo, Merlefest, SXSW, and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. Artists such as Rodney Crowell, Buddy Miller, Patty Griffin, and Marty Stuart are struck by Mike Farris’ incomparable voice. He has opened for Patti LaBelle, Mavis Staples, Blind Boys of Alabama, Ricky Skaggs and Bruce Hornsby. Mike’s spirited soul-gospel fusion also led to an invitation to perform at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 16th Annual American Music Masters Concert honoring Aretha Franklin. Concert takes place in the Performance Theater at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum.
The Friends of 1927 Concert Series is a unique concert experience where fans have the opportunity to interact with the artists in a relaxed setting over adult beverages and hors d’oeuvres, all included in the ticket price. Tickets are $100.
Tickets are made available first to Friends of 1927 for a limited time before opening them up to the public. There is a very limited number of tickets so everyone is encouraged to purchase early.
