There's a great show coming this Sunday (6/3) to the Umstead Park UCC with Randall Bramblett. Doors open at 6:30 and the show starts at 7:30.
Rolling Stone Magazine had this to say about Randall - "One of the South's most lyrical and literate songwriters."
Randall has also been sought after as a side musician. His multi-instrumentalist skills landed him on the speed dial of some of the greatest names in rock history, including Steve Winwood (16 yrs), Levon Helm, and Bonnie Raitt. His live performances confirm what the Allman Brothers, Widespread Panic, REM and others have attested to – Bramblett is one of the finest southern rock/soul players, ever. “Randall is in my opinion the most gifted & talented southern singer-songwriter musicians of the past several decades.” — Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones, Allman Brothers)
With its excellent sound system, comfortable seating, and laid back atmosphere, UPUCC offers a uniquely enjoyable, almost pristine "listening room" environment for singer-songwriters. There are not many, if any, better venues in which to experience the musical magic of a profoundly gifted artist like Randall Bramblett. His guitar and sultry southern voice will carry you away to soulful experiences of human grit and grace; and when he moves to the grand piano, Bramblett's musical gifts fill the room, your senses, and your imagination with music that quickens the spirit.
