The Barbara’s & Chris King : Presented by Sou’wester Arts
The Barbara’s are sisters Sallie and Weezy Ford.
According to singer Seth Avett of The Avett Brothers, Sallie Ford’s songs have that “rare quality of somehow combining fun with emotional and artistic integrity” and she “fills the room with it” and reminds him of the “energy of early rock ‘n’ roll.
Chris King of Chris King & The Gutterballs know the secret to creative success; movement is key to progress. Whether by gust of tornado-wind or rubber against the road, to push forward is all there is in a life, buoyed and scarred by love. The band infuses this propelling urgency in all of its performances, into all of its songs and it starts with King’s dynamic, uncorked-fire-hydrant of a voice.
