Event Description

“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

From Nashville, Tennessee, Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Mike Farris blends blues, gospel and Stax-style soul. A musical renaissance man, Farris toured as lead singer for rock band Screamin’ Cheetah Wheelies and, for a time, fronted blues guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Double Trouble. After his 2015 Grammy win, “Best Roots Gospel Album” for Shine For All The People, Farris maintains a distinct blues-rock, soul-tinged flavour with his 2018 record Silver & Stone. Farris won the prestigious Americana Music Award for “Best New Emerging Artist”, a Dove Award for “Best Traditional Gospel Album of the Year”, and was featured with Lauryn Hill, Chaka Khan, Cissy Houston, and Ronald Isley at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s 16th Annual American Masters concert honoring Aretha Franklin. Mike Farris and the Fortunate Few played Victoria in September 2018 and now return to rock the Blues Bash outdoor stage.
