This gathering at the Handlebar was not your run-of-the mill benefit show. The cast of players assembled for this special cause are steeped in talent and tradition, and all came together from different places to benefit a worthy cause.

Eddie and Will opened the show with a set of rousing, high energy roots music from Eddie’s new record. Brad and Dan put on a show of amazing flat-picking. Will came on and delivered soulful vocals and deep blues guitar. And then came Fayssoux and Brandon….music you just have not witnessed in years, beautiful, tight vocal harmonies, and Brandon’s smoking hot guitar work. The show ended with all the players assembled on the stage, culminating with Will and Fayssoux leading an emotional and electrifying rendition of Amazing Grace.

Brad Davis has spent years on the road with the likes of Marty Stuart, Earl Scruggs and Billy Bob Thornton. Will McFarlane toured with Bonnie Raitt for six years. Eddie Keith has shared the stage and studio with Shawn Mullins, Dan Dugmore, Johnny Neel, Malcom Holcomb, Jimmy Casto, Jeff Talmadge and Col. Bruce Hampton to name a few. Spartanburg’s own Fayssoux McLean has provided harmony vocals on many of the works of Emmylou Harris. You get the point: this show was filled with acoustic guitar slinging goodness and amazing vocals. When you have the opportunity to see any of these folks, it will be well worth your time, as each is great, and together in any combination they are amazing.

Proceeds will benefit the Enterprise, Alabama high school that was destroyed in the March 1 tornado that killed eight students and damaged another 731 structures in its 10-mile swath.

Bio

Grew up in South Alabama soaking up Folk, Americana, Roots, Blues, Bluegrass, Country, Rock…you’ll hear it all in his music. He is, after all, a musical traveler and is as at home with a mandolin or Martin in his hand as he is with a Tele, or Les Paul.

His solo shows are a real clinic in capos, partial capos, altered tunings and a really aggressive right hand. He has a vocal delivery like he is channeling a very old soul, and Soul it is!

Ed brings it with a ‘look you right in the eyes’ delivery. He writes like Prine, full of stories that make you say, " me too..." He sings like a combination of Johnny Cash, Bruce Cockburn and Warren Zevon … big voice, big man, Big Love. His approach to the guitar is like a cocktail of Carl Perkins, John Fahey, Michael Hedges and Jimmy Rodgers. Powerful voice, powerful lyrics, powerful guitar.

Ed has shared the stage and studio with Johnny Neel, Leon Medica, Dan Dugmore, Fayssoux McLean, Will McFarlane, Edgar Winter, Bruce Hampton, Shawn Mullins, Jeff Talmadge, Robin Bullock, John Gardner, Brad Davis, James Casto, Kenny Neal, Malcom Holcomb, Etta Britt, Paul Martin, Andrea Zonn, Jimmy Hall, Savoy Brown, Marshall Tucker, Bruce Hornsby, The Dregs, Hank .Jr, Ronnie Milsap, Bobby Bare, Freddy Dollar, Steve James, Danny Khan, Dave Craver, Derick Firworda, The Chappells, Edwin McCain and on and on… and the journey continues. Acoustc Guitar, Mandolin, Dobro, Bass, Lap Steel, Banjo, and always a Big Smile…
