KFAI is proud to sponsor The Holmes Brothers at the Cedar Cultural Center on Wednesday, August 13, at 7:30 pm.
The Holmes Brothers— guitarist/pianist/vocalist/songwriter Wendell Holmes, bassist/songwriter/vocalist Sherman Holmes, and drummer/vocalist and brother-in-spirit Popsy Dixon—are true treasures of American roots music.
For 35 years, The Holmes Brothers’ joyous and moving blend of blues, gospel, soul, R&B, rock ‘n’ roll, and country has been captivating audiences around the world. After being away from us for way too long, The Cedar is welcoming them back to the West Bank as they tour behind their new album, Brotherhood (Alligator Records). Brotherhood is the trio's most bluesy album to date, filled with roadhouse wisdom, late-night doo wop, proto rock ‘n’ roll punch, and soulful R&B, closing with an amazing dose of Sunday morning spirit.
