AMG Weekend Picks: Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers, Delta Moon, and all the Irish Music You Can Handle
Friday, March 14- Delta Moon A Live Recording @ Eddie’s Attic
With a live show second-to-none, the dual slide guitars of Delta Moon carry the listener deep into the heart of the American South, where sinuous Mississippi blues meets the gritty backwoods twang of Appalachia and winds around a rock-steady beat like kudzu on a barbwire fence. Net Rhythms calls it “Music as it should be – raw and honest.” We call it Blues-Infused American Roots.

But Harkin—a native of County Derry in Northern Ireland who began his performing career at the age of four—started out as a guitar-playing singer-songwriter, and with his self-titled debut solo album, he reveals an emotional range and eclectic sensibility that will surprise even the group’s most die-hard fans.

Friday, March 14- Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers @ Mill Town Music Hall
Over 50 years ago, Larry, Steve, and Rudy Gatlin started singing in their little hometown of Abilene, Texas, and from there went on to make music history. Over the course of a four-decade career that has taken the Gatlin Brothers from dusty Texas stages to White House performances, from Broadway to Grammy Awards to the top of the country charts, there has been one unifying element, music. There’s no harmony quite as pure as family harmony. “Gatlin harmonies spin with high and light precision and their music bleeds and screams of love and a lot of living” said Country Capsule in New York.

Born in a pub and raised on concert and festival stage, the Buddy O’Reilly Band has been a driving force for Irish and American roots music for the past 25 years. “The Buddies”, as they’re affectionately known to their fans, present great time-honored traditional music in a vibrant, engaging and sometimes slightly wacky way even. Wielding fiddles and wooden flute, uilleann pipes (Irish bagpipes), guitar, bodhran, (Irish drum) harmonica and banjo, the Buddies “…create quite a rumble when in full swing!” (Dirty Linen Magazine). Add wonderful ballads and pub songs to the mix, and top off with some powerful Irish step-dancing, and you have one mighty hooley on your hands!
