Achison, Bramblett play at TFACPublished 5:08pm Friday, May 18, 2012
Australian blues-roots guitarist Geoff Achison and Georgia singer-songwriter Randall Bramblett will take center stage with drummer and Grammy winner Yonrico Scott and bassist Ted Pecchio at the Tryon Fine Arts Center in Tryon on June 2 at 8 p.m.
In collaboration with Tryon Fine Arts Center and public radio station WNCW (88.7), Lichty Guitars is a sponsor for this event. Tryon guitar builder Jay Lichty designed and built a custom guitar for Geoff Achison, who plays his Lichty acoustic guitar exclusively for his U.S. tours.
“It doesn’t get any better than Geoff Achison and Randall Bramblett if you love guitars, blues, folk, rock, brilliant lyrics and vocals. That the Tryon Fine Arts Center is bringing such talent to Tryon is to be applauded, ” said Lichty.
Critics have said when Geoff Achison and Randall Bramblett perform together it’s a concert not to be missed.
“Incendiary. That’s the word. Burnin’ hot. I have heard some great jam bands. I grew up on The Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, etc. But I have never, no never, heard better jamming than I heard last night,” wrote a reporter for the Atlanta Examiner after an Achison/Bramblett show.
These musicians have played with many well-known groups, including Widespread Panic, The Band, The Allman Brothers, Steve Winwood, Derek Trucks Band, Stevie Wonder, Hot Tuna, Santana and Susan Tedeschi.
