stacy mitchart soul at the factory2. Southern Soul at The Factory Presents Stacy Mitchart
March 18th, doors open at 6p
Little Brick Theatre, The Factory at Franklin
230 Franklin Road, Franklin 37064

Southern Soul At The Factory will showcase the stylings of Stacy Mitchart on March 18th in the Little Brick Theater.

Mitchart is a mix of down-home blues with a splash of soul that serves as a springboard for his canny storytelling and elegant guitar.

Mitchhart’s musical journey began in his native Cincinnati, Ohio, in a home where jazz guitar masters like Wes Montgomery and Johnny Smith were played on the stereo. Therefore it was natural that he gravitated to the six-string. As a child he saw the outrageous Little Richard on a TV show and was captivated by his showmanship. Little Richard looked and acted differently than anybody he had ever been exposed to. Today, Mitchhart has created his own brand of showmanship that brings audiences back again and again.
