Robert Connely Farr - "DIRTY SOUTH BLUES" - CD
In November 2018, Robert Connely Farr self-released "DIRTY SOUTH BLUES" (produced by Leeroy Stagger). The album was met with widespread critical acclaim. American Blues Scene called it “a masterpiece... an album you must hear”. Elmore Magazine (with comparisons to Springsteen’s ‘Nebraska’) said it’s “completely authentic... sinks its claws in deep.” The album continued to sink in its claws and the critics and music fans continued to take notice. Without any promotion, the album started appearing on Blues and Americana radio charts and Farr received requests to play major festivals. More and more people have started to become aware of Robert Connely Farr. Just recently, Farr was nominated for Songwriter of the Year & New Artist of the Year for the 2019 Maple Blues Awards.
"I was talking to Connely," Jimmy "Duck" Holmes recently remarked. "People like that album as much as I do." Duck said. "But there's a problem. . . he's about sold out." To make sure more people are able to listen to "DIRTY SOUTH BLUES", Duck decided to re-release it on Blue Front Records. Make sure you get your own copy today.
“The sound is sparse and eerie, with Bentonia’s minor-keyed style well in evidence… (Farr is) unafraid to speak his mind… Definitely recommended.” - Blues in the South
"As a lyricist, Farr has a John Prine approach… as a singer, suggestions of another Southern Vocalist, Gregg Allman, come across… this is blues that originated in Mississippi." - American Blues Scene
"A remarkable collection of deep-rooted Blues, that is surely going to be a classic." - Blues Highway US 61
