The award winning trio from County Clare have captivated audiences, the world around, with their high energy performances, breath-taking musical ability and their trademark 3 part vocal harmonies, and have returned with the follow up to their debut award winning 2013 album.

The album offers 6 sets of tunes, tastefully diverse and brilliantly crafted, combined with 6 songs, showcasing both vocal and harmonizing abilities of each member on their respective songs, totaling a dozen stand-out tracks that will captivate and mesmerize the listener. Demonstrating creative versatility, several of the tunes and one of the songs have been written and arranged by the band. The album experience is exactly that which one encounters at a live ‘Socks’ show- a high energy, masterfully performed collection of music and song that demonstrates exactly why ‘Socks in the Frying Pan’ is fast becoming a household name and why they are one of the most loved and sought after Irish bands in the world today.

Flagstaff Arts Council presents

The Talbott Brothers

The Talbott Brothers are a product of America’s heartland. Though currently based in Portland, Oregon, the duo grew up in Imperial, Nebraska, with a population just eking over 2,000. As indie-folk-rock musicians, Nick and Tyler Talbott, are somewhat of an anomaly, originating from a place where farming or ranching are the more typical career paths. Their honest songwriting is not only a breath of fresh air, but collections of down-to-earth messages that prove to be prevalent in today’s world.

Ghost Talker is the second full-length studio album from the sibling duo. Blood harmonies and sibling rivalry are evident in their songwriting with lyrics pulling from the trials of everyday life and the questions we all face. “Everyone has ghosts, whether they talk about them or not. We wanted to take off the mask and be honest with this record, hoping that what we needed to say is what people needed to hear.”

At its core, the album is transformative in nature, prompting the listener to question motives, face realities, and go to war with their own ghosts. Spiritual apprehension and seeking answers are common themes. “Shadowboxing” is a hard look in the mirror, realizing that what you have been fighting all along is your own fear. “It takes one good fight to turn things around.”

Lead single, “Run No More” forces a look at the past while offering a soul shaking guitar solo that feels like a rally cry. “We tried running for a long time but it doesn’t do a heart any good. Sometimes in a wake-up call you realize what’s most important to you. “Run No More” is about when your legs give out and you gotta turn around and fight.”

Drawing influence from John Mayer, Kaleo and Mumford & Sons, Ghost Talker will challenge your built-in world view and push you to embrace the unknown. No strangers to the road, The Talbott Brothers will be touring across the US, supporting the album release this fall 2019.

The show will take place on Thursday, March 26, 2020, doors are at 7:00pm and the show will start at 7:30pm. Tickets are $20 advance/ $25 day of show. Arts Council Members recieve 10% discount!

Emily Scott Robinson

North Carolina native Emily Scott Robinson has traveled a quarter million miles and counting, paying her dues along the dusty highways of America’s wild country in the RV she calls home. Along the way, she’s captured the stories of the people she met and expertly crafted them into the songs featured on her gorgeous debut studio release, “Traveling Mercies.” Named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country and Americana Artists to Watch in 2019,” Robinson received critical acclaim from Billboard, No Depression, and American Songwriter for the stories captured on her new album and performed on the main stage of the 2019 Telluride Bluegrass Festival as winner of the Telluride Troubadour Contest.

The diner where the waitress knows everyone by name. The World War Two veteran reflecting on the end of his life. The windswept trailer park where people prefer to keep their curtains closed. As she meditates on human frailty and the power of resilience, Robinson is at times vulnerable, at others, defiant and absolutely free. Rolling Stone called “Traveling Mercies” a collection of “country-folk songs about America in all its pain and glory with the literate, Southern gothic sensibility of Flannery O’Connor.” Robinson is on the rise with her new record— a tour de force from an elegant chronicler of her own existence and those of her fellow humans.

The show will take place on Saturday, April 4, 2020, doors are at 7:00pm and the show will start at 8pm. Tickets are $12 advance/ $15 day of show. Arts Council Members recieve 10% discount! Contact the Center for details.) Tickets can be purchased online, in person at Coconino Center for the Arts. All ticket sales are final – no refunds will be issued.
