WATKINS GLEN CELEBRATION
Leading the dual-charge of guitars are beloved axe-slingers Lewi Longmire (AgesandAges, Denver, Michael Hurley, Fernando) and Anita Lee Elliott (Viva Voce, Blue Giant, Calico Rose). The demanding rhythm section features Matt Cadenelli (Don of Division, Fernando), Jimi Bott (The Fabulous Thunderbirds), and bassist Tim Huggins (James Low Western Front, Maria the Mexican). Keyboardist extraordinaire Steve Kerin (Too Loose Cajun and Zydeco Band, Atomic Gumbo), and Kris Stuart (Root Jack) completes the core lineup. As a bonus, harmonica ace David Lipkind (Woodbrain, I Can Lick Any SOB in the House) is brought in help fill in the guest harp from the Fillmore concert.
Brothers and Sister have studied the music of the Allman Brothers Band intensely, finding ways to capture the sound, style and feel of the original "At Fillmore East" concert while allowing for their own individual spirit and joy to shine through. They perform the music with haunting detail, to create an incendiary and heart-felt evening that would gratify even the Allmans themselves. In only 3 years, they've played some very high-profile shows and festivals, with nearly every performance being sold-out, or capacity crowds.
