Scott Sharrard
The first time configuration of this three generational collective coming together around their love for the blues. Scott Sharrard, formerly the Musical Director for Gregg Allman, will join Grammy nominated blues journeyman Bill Sims Jr and his grandson Jackson Speller along with Scott's multi-talented bandmate Moses Patrou to usher us through their delta influences.

"I know all about guitar players-I’ve seen the very best-and Scott Sharrard is the perfect guitarist for my band. He understands that you don’t need to play just for the sake of playing; Scott isn’t one of those guys who thinks they get paid by the note. He never steps on the vocals, and he leaves plenty of room for everyone else to do their thing, but when it’s time to solo, Scott delivers, boy." -Gregg Allman

Tyrone Cotton
Tyrone Cotton’s earliest musical revelation was listening to the raspy, inspirational voice of his grandfather, the Reverend Cleveland Roosevelt Williams, at his childhood home in Louisville, KY. At a young age, Cotton began playing guitar along to the sounds of popular rock and blues artists. Overtime, he was influenced by Jerry Garcia, Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Guy, and Mississippi John Hurt, who intrigued Tyrone with his “ finger pickin’ and soft, wispy voice.”

Inspired by this wide variety of artists, Cotton developed a style of writing that blended soul, folk, blues, jazz, and rock n roll. He has become a staple in the Louisville music scene over the past 30 years, being well recognized for his stirring voice and lyrics.

Cotton has toured throughout the United States and Japan, with plans to continue performing in the US this year. He is currently working on a new album with producer Josh Kaufman and drummer/producer, Ray Rizzo. Kaufman is best known for his work with The National, Bob Weir, and Josh Ritter.
