Roman Barten-Sherman’s Farewell Blues Extravaganza at MSA Annex
MSA Annex Presents
Roman Barten-Sherman’s Farewell Blues Extravaganza
Opening set by Trans Van Santos
With special guests Tom Walbank, Al Perry, Ralph White and more.
His commitment to the form has convinced bluesman Guy Davis that, “Roman is one of the people who will make sure that blues music stays alive, in the eyes and ears of his generation, and beyond.” Greil Marcus, America’s most respected music journalist, commented on his personal blog that Roman “took me right back to John Fahey’s deep-thinking tone.” He is unquestionably the most exciting young guitarist to emerge from Tucson since Connor “Catfish” Gallagher began wowing local audiences as a teenager over a decade ago.
Roman is heading off to Tufts University in Somerville, Massachusetts at the end of the summer, where he will study music, diligently do his homework, and continue to pay his dues. Come out and wish Roman Barten-Sherman a warm farewell on Saturday, August 14th. Tom Walbank, Al Perry, and Ralph White will all make guest appearances with Roman; while the veteran journeyman Trans Van Santos, recently returned to American soil, will open the concert with a solo set of handmade folk music.
Doors at 7:00, show at 7:30 pm
Tickets are $12 advance, $15 at the door
