SALLY BARRIS WILL BE FEATURED ON UPCOMING ACOUSTIC NIGHT AT THE BAMA THEATRE
(Tuscaloosa, Ala.) The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa will present Sally Barris & The Birmingham Boys in concert on Acoustic Night, June 24, 2016, at 7:30 p.m. at the Bama Theatre’s Greensboro Room. Cover charge is $10 with a full service bar available.
Sally Barris is an A-list Nashville songwriter who has had songs covered by such top-level artists as Kathy Mattea, Martina McBride and Lee Ann Womack. Her song “Let the Wind Chase You”, recorded by Trisha Yearwood and Keith Urban, received a Grammy nomination for vocal collaboration in 2009. While her writing credits mightily impress, fans and peers are most captivated by her bright spirit and expressive mountain soprano. Dirty Linen says “Barris knows how to write lyrics that are as forthright as a stream of clear water and how to support them with melodies that share that quality.” She also performs with dobro player and guitarist Chas Williams and mandolin player Jason Bailey as “Sally Barris & The Birmingham Boys”. The Minnesota native has performed Mountain Stage, New Bedford Summer Fest, Wildflower Arts & Music Festival and The Kerrville Folk Festival. She is currently touring with her new cd, “The Road in Me”.
The Bama Theatre is located at 600 Greensboro Avenue in Downtown Tuscaloosa.
