Mike Farris to play Ashington


Recommended Posts

Most people will not have heard of Mike Farris, but he is a Grammy Winning blues/gospel singer with an amazing voice from Tennessee USA. Ashington Town Council have booked him to play at  The White House Unique Social Club on Thursday 20th. October. Not many tickets left, but if you like music then this will be very special. Check out this video to see what he is all about.

Ps a highlight of mine was seeing Eric Bogle in Ashington not that many years ago! Watching him sing 'and the band played waltzing Matilda' actually did raise the hairs on my arms. Privileged much.

here's another example of Mike without his band, although he does have the wonderful McCrarry Sisters helping with the vocals on this video.

I'm pretty sure that they will not be at Washington with Mike, more the shame.
