bow-thayer-briggs-webYellow House Media presents Bow Thayer with Sherman Holmes and George Kilby, Jr. in an extraordinary evening where southern blues meets northern bluegrass folk rock. Bow Thayer, well-known for his genre-busting folk/rock/bluegrass style and his unusual line up of hybrid instruments will perform at the Briggs Opera House alongside the legendary Sherman Holmes and George Kilby, Jr.

Sherman Holmes is the eldest and last surviving member of the legendary Holmes Brothers. He shared in the winning of the Blues Foundation’s Band of the Year (’05) and Album of the Year (’08) as well as a NEA National Heritage Fellowship (’14), and has continued the Holmes Brothers’ tradition of sharing his musical and spiritual talents with artists from all genres of music. With The Holmes Brothers, he worked very closely with Joan Osborne, Peter Gabriel, Willie Nelson, and many more.

George Kilby Jr and Sherman Holmes, both veterans of the NYC “Dan Lynch” blues scene in the 80s, re-connected after the recent passing of Holmes Brothers Wendell and Popsy Dixon. A native of Alabama, frontman singer songwritier George Kilby, Jr. grew up listening to Southern Rock and Country music.   In addition to Pinetop Perkins, Kilby has worked with Henry Butler, Charmaine Neville, Coco Robicheaux, and Rosco Gordon.  The George Kilby, Jr. Trio features new songs co-written by George Kilby, Jr and Sherman Holmes as well as some Holmes Brothers classics with drummer and singer extraordinaire, Sam Doyle.
