Big Sky Town Center, 33 Lone Peak Dr
Join us as we continue the 2019 Music in the Mountains summer concert series with the soulful blues rock sounds of Ron Artis II and the Truth on Thursday, August 29, in the Big Sky Town Center Park. Tonight’s event is sponsored by the The Wilson Residence Inn Big Sky.
While developing his multi-instrumental prowess playing in the Artis Family Band, Hawaii-based Ron Artis II quickly took to piano and guitar as his main modes of expression. His mastery of both—in addition to numerous other instruments—quickly made evident that he was special. As he got older and played more around Oahu, others quickly recognized his gifts as well. Mick Fleetwood (Fleetwood Mac), Jack Johnson, Jake Shimabukuro and many others recognized the incredible talent that was taking root on their isolated island paradise. Since then, Ron has embarked on three full US Tours, playing sell out shows from coast to coast with his long list of collaborators and more. His debut full length album Soul Street just dropped in 2018 and has already garnered wide critical praise. The album crystallizes the full range of Ron’s influences—deep Delta Blues and Gospel, plus Northern Soul and R&B, alongside in-depth and personal lyrics—into a tight collection of fresh yet familiar songs that are at once urgent and timeless.
Park opens at 6pm, music starts at 7pm. There will be food and beverage vendors, kids art activities and admission is FREE! Please NO DOGS and NO GLASS CONTAINERS in the park during concerts. Thank you for your cooperation.
