Singer-songwriter Robert Connely Farr grew up in the small southern town of Bolton, Mississippi, home of Charley Patton & The Mississippi Sheiks. He has been mentored in the Bentonia style of the Delta Blues by Jimmy “Duck” Holmes since 2017. His 2019 release Dirty South Blues was met with widespread critical acclaim, including being named one of KEXP's Top Albums of 2019 & earning Farr nominations at Canada's prestigious Maple Blues Awards for Songwriter of the Year & New Artist of the Year. He currently resides in Vancouver, BC but when he's home in Mississippi, he can be found at Jimmy "Duck" Holmes' historic juke joint - the Blue Front Cafe.
