October 30 – Mike Paris
Michael Paris is a singer/songwriter/musician from Durham, NC. His music covers many topics, and his musical style is Americana/folk along the lines of Don McLean, Gordon Lightfoot, Harry Chapin, and John Denver. Many of his songs use themes from his Appalachia roots that come from the first half of his life in West Virginia. Michael mostly performs songs that he has written (over 100) and uses an acoustic guitar for most of them. He is a multi-instrumentalist and will sometimes use other instruments in his performances (e.g., dobro, Irish bouzouki, Hawaiian lap guitar). Michael has performed in the Triangle region for over a dozen years. He has been at Sacred Grounds previously when he performed with the groups The Dogwood Blossom Band, Up Cane Creek, and Gnarly Blue. This is Michael’s 2nd solo performance at Sacred Grounds – the 1st was an excellent concert… www.reverbnation.com/michaelparis
November 6 – Blake Addison and Savanna
Blake wrote “My music is about people, and their relationship with our Creator. God loves us so much, and wants to be a part of our daily routine and amplify our lives for His glory ! All of the songs that I wrote on the “Unreachable” were God inspired and pulled right out of the Bible. I am giving back to Him what He has so freely given to me! The gift of music!!” Blake will be joined by daughter Savanna who will sing with Blake and some songs she composed – she is a talented singer and songwriter. Please come out and see why they have become so popular at Sacred Grounds.
November 13 – Tokyo Rosenthal
“Rosenthal can draw you into his lyrics much the same way that James Taylor and Don Henley can”. “Take Jackson Browne’s personal confessions and wrap them in Kris Kristofferson’s world weary tales of broken relationships and you have an idea of what to expect from Tokyo Rosenthal.” “This is Americana with real teeth in the lyrics”. This and more is what the critics are saying about Tokyo Rosenthal. Tokyo has opened for America, Stephen Still and other recording stars plus toured the US, Canada, Europe, Japan, Scotland, Netherlands , etc. To save room listing his accomplishments, please go to his web site and see for yourself. This should be an interesting night of music you don’t want to miss. tokyorosenthal.com
