Quick Takes

Concert to pay tribute to Farris

November 03, 2009|Randy Lewis

Dave Alvin, Peter Case, Stan Ridgway and other members of the Southern California roots music community will play Sunday at McCabe's in Santa Monica in a memorial concert for Austin-bred, L.A.-based musician Amy Farris, who died Sept. 29 at age 40.

A multi-instrumentalist accomplished on several instruments in the violin family, Farris had most recently been on tour as a member of Alvin's Guilty Women band. In Texas she had played alongside country veteran Ray Price as well as Kelly Willis, Alejandro Escovedo, Bruce and Charlie Robison and many others.

A donation of $10 is being requested for admission to the performance, and proceeds will go to Farris' favorite charity, Hungry for Music, which provides musical instruments to underprivileged children.
