Nashville’s Bobby Bare Jr. may not yet be a household name, but he should be. We at the Halifax Urban Folk Festival consider him to be this year’s Aaron Lee Tasjan – someone you might not of heard of but will change once you’ve gotten a chance to see him – so trust us on this one. Aside from his great solo work, he’s also in Hali-beloved Guided By Voices‘ touring band. He’ll be playing solo as well as with a Halifax All Star band and the opening songwriters’ circle will include fellow HUFF headliners Tommy Stinson, Mary Gauthier along with Terra Spencer at The Carleton on Friday, September 29th. Show time is 8 PM and tickets are $67.50 + HST.
