Show: Bobby Long @ The 930 December 14th

Backseat Sandbar and The 930 Listening Room are excited to bring London (England) native Bobby Long to Louisville for one of his final stops in his American tour that kicks off in NYC in just a couple of days.  We had the chance to see Bobby in Nashville in April and were blown away.  You can see our review of the show here and a sample of his music below.  Bobby’s acoustic folk style tracks are reminiscent of and were inspired by some of his favorite musicians: Elliott Smith, Tom Waits, and Mississippi John Hurt, just to name a few.  One reviewer described his music as this:

“He’s got the soul of Van Morrison, Jeff Buckley and Ray Charles, the storytelling ability of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and Tom Waits, all of whom are listed as his musical influences.  But…he doesn’t copy them or try to be them, he effortlessly fits with them.”  source

Tickets will be $12.00 in advance and $15.00 at the door.  They can be purchased at Ear X-tacy or online at the930.org.

For more information on the show and his music visit The 930 Listening Room or see Bobby’s Facebook and Myspace.
