Summer Music Series: The best of the Allman Brothers with Idlewild South

  • Southern Village Green

Come listen to a FREE concert featuring Idlewild South: The Allman Brothers Tribute Band!

Idlewild South, The Allman Brothers Tribute Band, was co-founded by keyboardist and vocalist Don Eason, a veteran musician whose initial influence of The Allman Brothers Band's live performance goes back to his first concert experience of the band on Easter Weekend of 1970, at The Winter's End Concert in Bithlo, Florida. A duo of drummers, (including co-founder) Robert Kintner, and John Flowers, provides the foundation with bassist 
Tim Smith rounding out the rhythm section. Slide Guitarist Dave George and Lead Guitarist/ Vocalist Pete Waggoner bring forth the dual guitar harmonies and searing guitar leads Duane Allman and Dickie Betts pioneered in the late 1960's. 

In the tradition of The Allman Brothers Band, Idlewild South's live shows can exceed a staggering 3 1/2 to 4 hours non-stop in length. The set lists are different every night, drawing from The Allman Brothers Bands self-titled debut album, 2nd album Idlewild South, Live At Fillmore East, Eat A Peach, and Brothers and Sisters, all recorded between 1969 and 1974. A few select songs from their albums between 1989 and 2000 are also included.

Special July 4th Concert!!

  • Southern Village Green

Come see The Village Band and The Franklin Street Traditional Jazz Band to celebrate the 4th of July! 

 

IMG_0003_w580_h387.jpg

The Village Band of Chapel Hill / Carrboro, North Carolina is a non-profit community concert band committed to providing our members an opportunity for life-long musical expression, promoting music in the lives of all we meet, and providing cultural enrichment in our community. We are comprised of all ages, from teens to people in their 90s!

In 2011 eight of us, some who had known one another for years, discovered our mutual interest in the early form of jazz , principally as it emerged in New Orleans at the beginning of the last century.  In getting together to share this interest, and to expand our individual musical abilities to play and interpret these familiar melodies, we came to see the possibility of forming a new band to focus on the music we love, and to bring a "Carolina sound" to one of America's most classic musical forms.

Summer Music Series: The Byron Paul Band

  • Southern Village Green

A hallmark of the band is to cover songs across multiple genre, what matters is that it’s a good song.  They move effortlessly from intimate acoustic arrangements to full tilt rock and roll; tunes from The Band, Rodney Crowell, Bob Dylan, Nick Lowe and Bruce Springsteen fit snugly between songs by Randall Bramblett, Scott Miller, Robert Kirkland, Dave Loggins and Darrell Scott.  And while the group writes up a set list, they are just as apt to spontaneously pull out a song they haven’t even practiced.  At its core a trio, expect to see other musician friends from time to time.  They like to keep things loose and interesting for themselves and the audience, but these guys are pros so whatever they decide to do, know that you’re going to have a good time.
