THERE is a rare chance to see a solo show by talented Tennessee musician Mike Farris.

Farris is described as a ‘one-of-a-kind talent’ mixing gospel, rock, soul and blues. He will be playing at the Victoria hotel, Menai Bridge, on Tuesday, January 14.

His talent was rewarded with a Best Roots Gospel Grammy award for 2014’s Shine For All The People, followed by 2018’s equally revered Silver and Stone which features the likes of Joe Bonamassa, Double Trouble’s Reese Wynans and Elvis’ drummer Gene Chrisman.

Farris is widely regarded as one of the most sincere and compelling performers around. In the words of Rolling Stone magazine, he possesses “a super-sized voice filled with the electricity of Saturday night and the godly grace of Sunday mornings.”

Mike will perform a mix of originals as well as his own take on gospel and soul favourites. Support at the Vic is by acclaimed UK singer/songwriter Sean Taylor, whose unique songwriting is a late night cocktail of Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and Jack Kerouac, a voice crossed between John Martyn and Van Morrison and a guitar style that sounds like an acoustic Stevie Ray Vaughan jamming with JJ Cale.

Doors open 8pm and tickets are from Palas Print Caernarfon (01286 674631) and Mudshark Records Bangor.
