Saturday, June 17 at 7:30 p.m., join the festivities as singer and songwriter Paul Thorn reigns on the Centennial Stage in front of the Oats Park Art Center. The free performance is presented in cooperation with the Mayor, City Council, and the City of Fallon. 

“Thorn has been pleasing crowds for years with his muscular brand of roots music – bluesy, rocking, and thoroughly Southern, yet also speaking universal truths,” according to a report on National Public Radio. 

Among those who value originality, inspiration, eccentricity, and character, as well as talent that hovers somewhere on the outskirts of genius, the story of Paul Thorn is already familiar. Born in Tupelo, Mississippi, raised among the same spirits and some of the people who nurtured the young Elvis generations before, Thorn has rambled down back roads and jumped out of airplanes. He worked for years in a furniture factory and battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Duran on national television. He has also performed on stage with Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, Sting, and John Prine, among many others, and made some of the most emotionally restless yet fully accessible music of our time and appeared multiple times on the Billboard Top 100. 

The Oats Park Art Center is located at 151 East Park Street. For more information on the concert call 775.423.1440 or go to [email protected]
