The Dalis Album Release Show

Kingfisher Art Co., 7 East 2nd Ave., Rome

Join us for a special evening to celebrate the release of a long awaited album by Jeremy Wells (the Dalis). The Dalis are a folk picking band made up of two members with roots stemming deep in the many genres of southern Appalachia. Jeremy Wells brings a sultry and seasoned array of songwriting, accompanied by the artistic picking of pure soul. An almost nomadic sound with hints of gypsy jazz and bluegrass, coming together in a unique and un-replicated blend. As a multi-instrumentalist, he brings a new level to the layers of songwriting, with experience always at the forefront of words. Jessee Plumley is a fiddle player who's sound runs deep in old time, bringing with it the sweet, sometimes lonesome, sound of bowed string and heartfelt melody. With songs ranging from blues to grass, this fusion of sound is sure to deliver songs you won't soon forget. The gallery bar will be open serving sodas, wine and beer. Kingfisher is located downtown so there is no designated parking lot, but there is plenty of parking across the street at Truist Bank, and behind Harvest Moon. Doors 7pm Showtime 8pm $15 adv $20 dos

James was born November 1955 in south Mississippi. He moved to Atlanta, Georgia in 1982 and worked in advertising and design until 1998. Following his intuition he found a metal worker who hired him to help in his shop located in a warehouse on the fringe of the city. There he found other artists and cheap rent, and this combination fostered his creative growth. He began painting in 2000. Moving west, he tried to locate in Seattle but ended up in Lopez Island in Puget Sound, and again focused on the creative process. With every move his art matured, and he now lives in Pell City, Alabama in a cabin he built from the ground up out of salvaged materials, where he spends most of his time painting.

Russell Cook Opening Reception & Birthday Celebration! Exhibit runs through April 22, 2023.
