Event Archive - The Holmes Brothers

Sat. September 1st 2007 7:30pm - 10:00pm Ship Point (Inner Harbour) (All Ages) 7:30pm - 10:00pm
Presented by: Blues Bash 2007
The Holmes Brothers…the spine-tingling harmonies, boundless energy and telepathic musicianship of The Holmes Brothers (bassist/vocalist Sherman Holmes, guitarist/pianist/vocalist Wendell Holmes and drummer/vocalist Popsy Dixon) mix Saturday night’s roadhouse rock with the gospel fervor and harmonies of Sunday’s church service. USA Today calls The Holmes Brothers vision of American roots music “masterful and convincing.” Entertainment Weekly says, “The Holmes Brothers are juke-joint vets with a brazenly borderless view of American music.” Their chilling harmonies resonate with a passion and conviction matched only by their inspired musicianship and their ability to perform sanctified gospel, low-down roadhouse blues, deep soul, Americana/country and pure pop—all in one set. They’ve recorded with Van Morrison, Peter Gabriel, Odetta, Phoebe Snow, Willie Nelson, Rosanne Cash, Levon Helm and Joan Osborne and have gigged all over the world.

The Holmes Brothers are on the road again with their latest album State of Grace, produced by Craig Street (Norah Jones, Chris Whitley, Cassandra Wilson). Noted for their ability to transform songs by legendary writers from The Beatles to Tom Waits to Bob Marley, The Holmes Brothers push that tradition even farther on State of Grace. They expertly reinvent songs by writers as diverse as John Fogerty, Cheap Trick, Hank Williams Sr., Nick Lowe, George Jones and Lyle Lovett, delivering versions that need to be heard to be believed.
