Chris Merkley w/ special guests Tim Ruffo & Sonny Weeks
October 23, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Chris Merkley has performed over a thousand shows from the streets of Paris to venues through out Europe and across the United States. He has released nine albums with a variety of groups which include the song writing duo Merkley & Morgan, his high octane Bluegrass and Country Blues globetrotting band The Crooners, and the swampy blues rock trio of Digger Jones.
His most recent solo album, Momentos, was recorded in the early hours of the morning at the Homer Center for the Arts, a Baptist church-turned 400 seat theater. The bare acoustics of the empty theater proved the perfect setting for the intimate solo recordings of Merkley’s blend of Americana, Folk, and Blues music.
In addition to an extensive career of recording and touring, Merkley has composed and produced an extensive catalog of original music for TV, including work for HBO, Cinemax, and MTV, and has songs featured in several independent films.
Merkley is currently performing solo shows throughout the Northeast, as well as around Central New York with a number of projects that include Merkley & Morgan, The Crooners, The Speculators, and Digger Jones. — chrismerkley.com
