Music is a way of life. It is an art. Music connects our souls in a way that nothing else ever could, and it also makes for a great reason to get out of the house on a weeknight. If you’re just looking for something to do on a Thursday night, the Grand Stafford Theater is hosting musicians, Ryan Tharp and Jacob Furr, on September 13th. For those of you who are unaware of the two, give them a listen, and you’ll be booking it to the Grand Stafford in no time.

Ryan Tharp, no stranger to the stage, has been performing for a decade, which has led him to standing along sides of Ian Moore, Pete Yorn, and Bob Schneider. Now on his own two feet, Tharp released his record, “Life So Far,” back in January. The singer has a throaty, powerful voice, which, combined with his guitar-rock style, has captivated his audiences. His sound will leave you going out of your way to listen to him.

Joining Tharp at the Grand Stafford is Jacob Furr. Furr is a man of many talents. He is a songwriter and multi instrumentalist musician, and he has opened for big time acts like folk pop artist David Ramirez, folk duo Shovels and Rope and others. Furr is considered an alt-country folk artist, and his songs tell a story of great prophecies and fate.

The two gentlemen performing have a gift with their music. They each have such a passion for what they do that it’s impossible not to close your eyes and be moved by the wave of talent and guitar riffs.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and the show starts at 8:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $7 or online for $5.
