College Show: October 28, 2016: Allen & Baber Back at Home, Univ. of Central Arkansas, Conway, AR


Allen & Baber Back at Home
October 28, 2016

University of Central Arkansas
Reynolds Performance Hall
Conway, AR
7:30 PM CDT
Opening Acts: Matthew Huff, Adam Hambrick and Hannah Blaylock

Preview:
Kris, Barrett Baber (a country musician who got 3rd place on The Voice; he joined Kris and Luke Wade in Bentonville to cover Purple Rain earlier this year), Adam Hambrick (who is an excellent musician himself and co-wrote It's Always You; I highly recommend you click my link for him and check out his mixtape July), Hannah Blaylock (an old friend of Kris who sang on Cale's demos and with the band Eden's Edge), and Matthew Huff (an indie country musician) all attended the University of Central Arkansas and are joining forces for this acoustic concert at their former school. I'm really hoping for some good collabs with Kris, Hannah and Adam from this show. This one should be good as our friend @ArtistSupporter will be in attendance!

Updated: What a great show. All of them were in great voice and we got not one but two streams so we could enjoy along with the audience! Plus two premieres - one group song cover and a new Christmas song!  The #gavegoodlist award is yours, Conway! Set list and media (including Papa Allen's and @ArtistSupporter's videos) after the break...
