Pick a Peach: Alison Brown & Friends play the music of the Allman Brothers
Every year at FreshGrass, Grammy-winning banjoist Alison Brown joins forces with her musician friends for a special set dedicated to a legendary music-maker. From 2015’s The Man in Grass (Johnny Cash) to last year’s The Grass’d Waltz (The Band), Brown’s tribute sets — which feature special guests and artistic collaborations that you’ll only see at FreshGrass — create experiential moments that remind us why we love roots music. This year, Brown and friends present Pick a Peach, a nothing-but-Allman Brothers set that honors the fabled band and the recent passing of Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks. Close your eyes, and it’ll be 1971 all over again.
