Next up for the Ross Farm Music Series is San Francisco Bay Area folk-rock musician Scott Mickelson on Sunday afternoon, April 24. Mickelson is touring in support of his solo debut release, "Flickering," which appeared on the 2015 Grammy Ballot in two categories, "Best Folk Album" and "Best Roots Music Performance." 

Through a career that spanned five full-length releases with his band Fat Opie, a struggle with a long-term illness and a career as a fine artist, Mickelson has persevered. Now, with "Flickering," he delivers his most critically-acclaimed work. He sings the stories of those living their lives in contemporary America, as fragmented as it is. Lyrically, "Flickering" inhabits the world we all share, revolving around the challenge of existing in an oppressive culture, inundated by our surroundings. Songs about home, family, loss of family, marriage, relationships that are forever and ones that are slowly dying. More so, Mickelson reminds us that we all need to be aware of how we affect those around us both positively and negatively as we navigate through this life. 

Tickets are $20 in advance via PayPal on the RossFarm.org events page, or $25 at the door, and include free refreshments. To take advantage of the discounted price without PayPal, please contact Nola Hansen at 973-650-6458 or NolaJH@msn.com. This concert will be presented in the Music Room of the home on the historic Ross Farm property at 135 N. Maple Avenue in Basking Ridge.
