Live Music with Lauris Vidal
April 6 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Having toured the US non-stop since 2006, honing his signature heavy roots music sound with a handful of different live line ups. These days you will find Lauris Vidal touring as a true one man band thrashing & howling wildly behind a junk heap of salvaged percussion where his feet beat a kick drum, snare drum, floor tom, hi hats and tambourine, his hands pluck home made guitars, tenor banjo, ukulele and lap steels all while his signature “Tom Waits giving a hug to Paul Simon” vocal styling dances, pounces and howls over what has been called a tightly woven sonic fabric of heavy southern soul music.
He’s played everything from multi-million dollar mansion living rooms to anarchist squatter homes, Outlaw biker gang bars to a sold-out show at Jack White’s Third Man Records in Nashville, hole in the wall dive bars to massive festival stages, all while sharing them with acts as diverse as Blitzen Trapper, Bad Brains, Leon Russell, Benjamin Booker, The Avett Brothers, Shovels and Rope, American Aquarium, Kelley McRae, The Whoolly Bushmen and hundreds of others. Go, catch him while you can, wherever you can & share what thousands have witnessed & rave about- his live energy.
