Rik Emmett, lead singer and guitarist of the rock band Triumph, returns to the Narrows Center in Fall River, Mass., on Saturday, Sept. 16, at 8 p.m. Emmett will celebrate the music of Triumph with a special acoustic performance with Dave Dunlop. Tickets can be purchased HERE.
Emmett gained international notoriety as the lead singer/songwriter/guitarist of the rock trio Triumph. From 1975 until 1988, the band released nine albums that were certified gold or platinum in the US and Canada thanks to the massive singles “Follow Your Heart,” “Magic Power,” “Lay It On The Line,” “Hold On,” and “Somebody’s Out There.” After leaving the band, Emmett went on to form a successful solo career, which showcased him as a proficient songwriter and guitarist.
Audiences marvel at the versatility of Emmett as he continues his prolific run of solo indie CDs, from classical to jazz to acoustic pop and folk vocal stylings through to the hard rock and heavy metal that made his reputation in the first place. His wide catalogue of songs garners radio airplay on classic rock stations throughout North America. A former VP of the Songwriter’s Association of Canada, and formerly the Artistic Director of the Humber Songwriting Workshop, Emmett helped to develop the Music Business course in the Humber Music program and currently teaches songwriting there, as well as consulting on several student recording projects.
The Narrows Center for the Arts is located at 16 Anawan Street. Tickets to his show can be purchased online HERE or by calling the box office at 508-324-1926. For those wanting to purchase tickets in person, box office hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 12 noon to 5 p.m.
