DUBLIN, GA - Tickets are now on sale for the EG Kight and Friends Concert to be held Saturday, November 10th at Oconee Fall Line Technical College’s DuBose Porter Center in Dublin.
EG, along with her band, will be performing for the event which is a fundraiser to benefit the OFTC Foundation South. Also, slated to appear are Randall Bramblett, Paul Hornsby, and Tommy Talton. Local performer, David Gabble of GMD Entertainment, will be providing music before the show. Dublin’s Bi-Centennial will also be highlighted throughout the evening.
EG, who is from Laurens County, is a singer, songwriter, guitar player, and entertainer. She has been pleasing audiences from across America and in Europe for years. Even though Kight’s career began with country music, she has broadened her musical scope to include Americana, southern rock, blues, pop, jazz, gospel and funk. She has shared the stage with a wide array of artists such as Merle Haggard, Gregg Allman, Foghat, Little Feat and others. She closed out 2011 by working two shows with B.B. King. Kight has been honored by many nominations and awards for her music and songwriting. In the early years, EG was dubbed “The Georgia Songbird,” and this has stuck with her throughout her career.
Randall Bramblett is a much sought after songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. In his early years with Capricorn Records he joined forces with Chuck Leavell and did a tour with Gregg Allman. His path led him to perform with the likes of Steve Winwood and Warren Haynes. His talent as a songwriter is well documented, and his songs have been recorded by Widespread Panic, Bonnie Raitt, and many more artists.
Paul Hornsby’s love of music started at a young age. He was greatly influenced by Chet Akins, Merle Travis, and the Ventures. In the late 60s, Hornsby was hired by Capricorn Records where he was a studio piano player. He soon moved into production where he produced such groups as the Marshall Tucker Band, the Charlie Daniels Band, Wet Willie, and others. Paul is one of the founding fathers of Southern Rock music.
Tommy Talton is known as one of the best songwriters and guitarists of our time. He has taken the southern music scene by storm in recent years. His music showcases his classic slide and guitar work along with his distinctive vocals and passionate songwriting. From blues to southern rock, country to Americana, R & B and soul, Talton’s music pleases everyone. He is a founding member of the Capricorn Records group Cowboy, and has recorded with many artists such as Dickey Betts, Clarence Carter, Gregg Allman, Bonnie Bramlett, and more.
