Micah Barnes of The Ny­lons to per­form July 11

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY -

Singer song-writer Micah Barnes of the pop­u­lar record­ing act The Ny­lons will play the Trail­side Mu­sic Cafe’ & Inn in Mount Ste­wart on Tues­day, July 11. Hav­ing cut his teeth in the cabarets and jazz clubs of Toronto while a teenager, Barnes be­came a singer song­writer on the Queen Street scene be­fore join­ing The Ny­lons and tour­ing the world.

Record­ing with the a capella pop act brought him into the global mu­sic scene; land­ing him in Cal­i­for­nia where he launched a solo ca­reer tour­ing the United States. In turn, this led to him cre­at­ing the in­ter­na­tional club hit “Wel­come To My Head” and cov­er­age in Rolling Stone Mag­a­zine as “an in­die artist to watch.”

Barnes’ new col­lec­tion, “New York Sto­ries”, pays homage to the rich mu­si­cal his­tory of the Big Ap­ple with songs that de­scribe a long dis­tance ro­mance us­ing the rhythms of the Cot­ton Club, the Brill Build­ing, The Apollo The­atre and clas­sic Broad­way.

Tick­ets are avail­able at www. trail­side.ca, Back Al­ley Mu­sic or by call­ing 902-394-3626. Doors and kitchen open at 6:30 p.m. with mu­sic at 8 p.m.
