Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Gregg Allman returns to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Tuesday, Jan. 7, 7:30 p.m.
CLEARWATER - Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Gregg Allman returns to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Tuesday, Jan. 7, 7:30 p.m. This will be Allman’s first concert at Ruth Eckerd Hall since his sold-out date in January 2012.
A founding member of the legendary Allman Brothers Band and a critically acclaimed solo artist, songwriter, keyboardist and guitarist, Gregg Allman is a natural interpreter of the blues. His soulful voice and gift for interpreting the blues placed him at No. 70 in the Rolling Stone magazine list of the “100 Greatest Singers of All Time.”
At last year’s 54th Annual Grammy Awards, the Allman Brothers Band was honored with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award, in part a celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the group’s seminal live album Eat a Peach. Allman himself was also nominated for Best Blues Album for his solo record, Low Country Blues, which follows in the footsteps of his other acclaimed solo albums including Laid Back (1973), Playin’ Up A Storm (1977), I’m No Angel (1986) and Searching For Simplicity (1997).
This continued critical success comes paired with a sold-out 10-night stand at the Beacon Theater in New York City earlier this year, part of a residency that was established almost 20 years ago, and the New York Times bestselling memoir My Cross To Bear (William Morrow publishing) out in paperback.
