Casey Abrams, season 10 American Idol finalist, will be live in concert at Dorothy Stickney Auditorium, May Hall, on Friday, Oct. 4 at 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 general admission and $25 for VIP admission.

Abrams is a 21-year-old singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and American Idol finalist and will be performing songs from his self-titled debut album on Concord Records. On his album, Abrams co-wrote, sang, played bass, acoustic guitar, drums, Wurlitzer and even the recorder.

“Blame It On Me” features Abram’s soulful bass line and vocal agility. Romantic desire is made known on hits, “A Boy Can Dream,” and he delivers a vocal tour de force on “Dry Spell.” To cap the disc, Abrams pays homage to Ray Charles on “Hit the Road Jack” performed as a duet with fellow American Idol contestant Haley Reinhart (produced by Steve Jordan.)
