Special to the
The Randall Bramblett Band, along with special guests Blackberry Possum, will perform an outdoor Sundilla concert July 12. Blackberry Possum will take the stage at 7 p.m. for an opening set, to be immediately followed by The Randall Bramblett Band.
“Randall Bramblett at Sundilla has become an every-other-year tradition – but those are always solo shows,” said Sundilla Organizer Bailey Jones. “When we had the opportunity to book Randall and his band, there was no way we could turn it down. Randall playing solo acoustic is a wonderful thing to experience, but I think adding the full band – electric guitar, drums, keyboards and even Randall on saxophone – will be unforgettable.”
“Adding Blackberry Possum to anything always makes it better,” Jones added.
In addition to his band and solo work, Bramblett was also a major part of the seminal jazz-rock group Sea Level, and has toured and recorded with The Allman Brothers, Traffic, Levon Helm, Elvin Bishop, Steve Winwood, Govt. Mule, Widespread Panic and more.
Rolling Stone calls Bramblett, “one of the South’s most lyrical and literate songwriters.”
Bill Berry of REM says, “Randall is the most talented and prolific songwriter I have the privilege of knowing.”
Chuck Leavell of The Rolling Stones and The Allman Brothers said he believes, “Randall is the most gifted and talented Southern singer-songwriter musicians of the past several decades.” Hittin’ the Note puts it succinctly: Randall Bramblett is the William Faulkner of Southern music.”
