The St. Augustine Amphitheatre, in partnership with Flying Saucer Presents, proudly welcomes seminal alt-country band Son Volt live from the Backyard Stage at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. Led by the songwriting and vocals of Jay Farrar, Son Volt was one of the most instrumental and influential bands in launching the alt-country movement of the 1990’s; a movement that was the precursor to what is now widely referred to as Americana.
Farrar possesses one of the most distinctive voices in roots, rock, country or any genre. He exudes a soulful longing combined with a wise-beyond-his-years command that is as arresting and compelling as ever. As a songwriter, Farrar’s depth and poetic penchant has been the foundation of a thoughtful, deep, and intelligent body of work. Both attributes are on full display on Son Volt’s latest album, “Notes Of Blue’, as he touches on themes of redemption and the common struggle, both of which are at the core of the Blues. “Notes of Blue” is a testament to the legacy of inspiration and creative spirit that Jay Farrar and Son Volt continue to uphold.
