Come celebrate the Album Release of “Uncommon Sky” the new Rick Faris Album, officially out on June 9 and available for sale for the first time at the Station Inn!
Prominent bluegrass artist (Blue Highway) and author Tim Stafford said, “Rick Faris has constantly wowed me with his powerful vocals and virtuoso mandolin and guitar playing…In short, I thought of the guy as the vanguard of younger musicians who are carrying Bluegrass forward”
So come support one of Bluegrass music’s “shining lights” as he releases his 3rd solo record “Uncommon Sky” out on the Dark Shadow Recording label.
Joining Rick for this release show is his brother JimBob Faris on upright Bass and singing those tight brother harmonies, the Northwest coast’s only banjo playing, hotshot Nashville Music Lawyer Will McSeveney, guitar and mandolin virtuoso Chris Luquette (recently of Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen) on mandolin and of course fellow label-mate Laura Orshaw on fiddle (Po Ramblin’ Boys) who is an amazing solo artist in her own right. There may also be a few guests chiming in as the evening goes on so stop by and catch all the fun!
Rick spent a total of 11 years with the globetrotting Special Consensus, earning 2 Grammy Nominations and 6 IBMA Awards while in the band. Last September, at the 2022 International Bluegrass Music Association’s Awards ceremony, Faris was awarded IBMA’s “New Artist of the Year” for his solo efforts.
Come on out to the World Famous Station Inn to see the “New Artist of the Year” Rick Faris.
