In 2007 in the quaint city of Eureka Springs, Arkansas -- home of artists, free spirits and the
perennially laid back -- Brick Fields was born when Larry Brick and Rachel Fields met, married,
and began playing music together. Since that time, BF has garnered critical acclaim and
multiple awards for their music. Moreover, they have won the hearts of loyal fans all over the
world with tunes that are solid like a firm conviction.
For the faithful, Brick Fields has hosted Northwest Arkansas' longest running weekly live music
event. With hundreds of mid-week performances since 2012, what some music lovers who first
attended began calling it their "church" other fans calling it their "therapy," Brick Fields Blues
Therapy continues to enlighten and lift up those who attend every Wednesday night at
Morano's in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
2020 brought more accolades to Brick Fields Blues Therapy when The Ozark Blues Society Blues
Challenge named BFBT as their representative to the prestigious International Blues
Competition in Memphis, Tennessee. From a field of over 260 performers coming from all over
the world BFBT advanced to the round of 42 in the semi-finals. Some may say this puts them
near the top of the best blues bands on this earth!
Brick Fields music is much more than blues, though. The Nashville Blues Society has called the
Brick Fields sound "A cleansing of the soul". They've also won folk, songwriting and
regional music awards, with the last recognition being a 2020 win for “Blues Song Of The Year”
at the World Independent Music Awards, voted on by such luminaries as Lucinda Williams, Tom
Waits and even Snoop Dogg.
Working more than 225 regional shows a year and with 6 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.
