Micah Barnes from the popular international group The Nylons will be playing the Trailside Music Cafe’ & Inn in Mount Stewart Tuesday evening with special guest pianist Holly Arsenault.
Having cut his teeth in the cabarets and jazz clubs of Toronto while still a teenager, Barnes became a well-loved singer-songwriter on the Queen Street scene before joining The Nylons and touring the world.
Recording with the pop act brought Barnes into the global music scene and landed him in Venice Beach, Calif., where he launched a solo career touring the U.S. which led to his No. 1 international club hit “Welcome To My Head’’ and coverage in Rolling Stone magazine as “an Indie artist to watch’’. Returning to the jazz oriented songwriting of his earlier years has resulted in a series of critically acclaimed solo recordings, including his most recent “Domesticated’’, which saw Barnes returning to tour across Canada.
Tickets are available at trailside.ca, Back Alley Music or call 902-394-3626. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with music starting at 8 p.m.
