From the venue:

Knoxville-based songwriter, poet, and actor, RB Morris is incorporating theater and spoken-word into his current ensemble of musicians, which includes cello player, Cecilia Wright, multi-instrumentalist, Greg Horne, and percussionist extraordinaire, Hunter Deacon.

Having recently performed at the Big Ears Festival, RB has been described as a “cross between a rural Tom Waits and an urban Woody Guthrie”. A renowned songwriter, recording artist, and mesmerizing performer, his songs have been recorded by John Prine and Marianne Faithfull. He was named the Poet Laureate of The Sphere Conference, International Letterpress Convention held at the Knoxville Convention Center in 2015. In 2016, Morris was awarded Knoxville’s first official Poet Laureate by Mayor Madeline Rogero and the Arts and Culture Alliance of Greater Knoxville.

He has released seven full-length albums, including the newly released “Going Back To The Sky” (Singular Recordings) produced by Bo Ramsey.
