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

  • Southern Village Green 600 Market St Chapel Hill, NC, 27516 United States

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.
