About Brick Fields
Brick Fields began in 2007, when Larry Brick and Rachel Fields met, married, and began playing music together in the tourist town of Eureka Springs, Arkansas--home of artists, free spirits, and several annual music festivals including The Ozark Folk Festival and Eureka Rhythm and Blues Weekend. Over the years, Brick Fields has won multiple awards for their music.
Since 2012, Brick Fields has hosted Northwest Arkansas' longest running weekly live music event. It takes place every Wednesday night at Morano's in Fayetteville..Due to the soul-soothing nature of the event, music lovers who first attended began calling it their "church;" other fans called it their "therapy," Soon, Brick Fields Blues Therapy was born.
Brick Fields Blues Therapy recently won The Ozark Blues Society Blues Challenge, and went on to represent Northwest Arkansas at the International Blues Competition in Memphis. There, in a field of over 260 performers, they advanced to the semi-finals. Some may say this puts them in the top 40 of the best blues bands in the world!
Brick Fields music is much more than blues, though. Their sound has been called "A cleansing of the soul" by Nashville's Blues Society. They've also won folk, songwriting and regional music awards.
Working more than 225 regional shows a year and with 5 official album releases, Brick Fields has been called "a treasure" and "NWA's hardest working musical group," by KUAF's radio program Ozarks At Large.
