Rockabilly Hall of Famer's Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys
Forty Acres and RambleRill Farm are very pleased to invite you and your friends out to a Big Red Barn Dance, Saturday, May 21, featuring Rockabilly Hall of Famer's Big Sandy and His Fly Rite Boys!
Concertgoers are invited to come from 5 PM onward to the farm to enjoy a bring-your-own picnic, to walk the farm and woodland, and to play outdoor games (corn hole, croquet, horseshoes).
Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys is a western swing/country boogie musical band from California. http://www.bigsandy.net/
They began as rockabilly revivalists in the late 1980s, then dug deeper into the music which rockabilly came from: western swing and particularly the country boogie style of the late 1940s and early 1950s, which served as a link of sorts between the western swing and rockabilly eras and was particularly associated with California country music in that era.
Over the last three decades, they have kept up a constant cycle of traveling back and forth across the lower 48, then hopping across the pond to Europe and beyond. They bring with them a brand of American music that has earned them an induction into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame, several national television appearances, guest spots on The Grand Ole Opry, and a slew of adoring fans.
"I truly love being out on the road, and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to sing my songs all over the world," said Sandy. "But when I'm away from the U.S. for too long, it's like I need a recharge... like I need a solid dose of everything Americana. Give me a Chuck Berry song while rolling down the interstate, or a truck stop conversation with a waitress who once danced with Lefty Frizzell, and I'm good for another three thousand miles.
The barn dance location is RambleRill Farm (www.ramblerillfarm.com), a certified organic farm located at 913 Arthur Minnis Road between Carrboro and Hillsborough.
Showtime is 8 p.m. and tickets are $20 advance and $25 at the door, if available.
See you there!
