Jamie Virgin to play Kaleidoscope
RUMFORD -- Jamie Virgin of Rumford will play Kaleidoscope from 7-10 a.m. this Friday in the Mystic Theater at 49 Franklin.
Virgin, a songwriter, has written a collection of original songs and will play them at this event, hosted by local magician, juggler and owner of 49 Franklin, Scot Grassette, who will keep things moving with a variety of entertaining bits. There is no cover, but tips for the artists are encouraged. Refreshments available at the bar.
Virgin recorded his first in 2001 at Studio G in Turner with Bruce Goulet. “Mamma’s Due” and “I’ll Be” were highly influenced by Garth Brooks, and Ricky Scaggs. He puts his own personal stamp on each song with catchy riffs and meaningful lyrics. In 2005 Virgin recorded “Don’t You Know” in New York City. This was an incredible experience recording with a highly acclaimed studio band, Jamie says this one really has that bluesy southern rock feel, think Lynyrd Skynrd meets Brad Paisley. Country music fans as well as any music lover will not be disappointed.
Jamie has teamed up with Gary Petrie, they’ve jammed for months before deciding to play for private parties and community events since 2010. They will also be playing as the musical guests in the popular Friday Night Live at 49 Franklin Nov 8-10.
Other artists featured are Steve Cornish of Lewiston, he will read your mind and amaze you with his mad mental skills. Visual artist Liz Murphy will have a project to start and will finish the evening with what will promise to be a fantastic work of art. Chris Wing will also attend with a fresh canvas and a project to work on through-out the event.
Kaleidoscope is modeled after Jeff McBride’s “Wonderground” of Las Vegas NV. For photos and more info on Kaleidoscope go to www.49franklin.com.
