The Second Annual Lake Hartwell Music Festival is scheduled for Saturday, May 24.|
Following up the great show we had last year, this year's event is already proving to be an eagerly-anticipated day. We have had inquiries coming in from both musicians and music fans for several months. We are so excited to have Randall Bramblett & Geoff Achison Band headlining the event. These two super-musicians combine their virtuosic talents to make one of the best bands of the year! Bramblett and Achison soar with a razor-sharp rhythm section backing them up. It's a wonderful example of what can happen when two great musicians and songwriters put aside their egos and join forces. This band grooves so supremely it's like they're telepathic, and with their history, why wouldn't they be? Critics agree that when Geoff Achison and Randall Bramblett perform together it's a concert not to be missed. "Incendiary. That's the word. BURNIN' HOT. I have heard some great jam bands. I grew up on The Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, etc. But I have never, no NEVER, heard better jamming than I heard last night," wrote a reporter for the Atlanta Examiner after an Achison/Bramblett show. These musicians have played with the best of the best including Widespread Panic, The Band, The Allman Brothers, Steve Winwood, Derek Trucks Band, Stevie Wonder, Hot Tuna, Santana, Susan Tedeschi and many more.
After an overwhelming response to their exciting performance last year, we are excited to have regional favorites 3 & Twenty back for the 2nd LHMF!3 and Twenty's music transends the limited boundaries of traditional and contemporary genres. It is Country at its highest evolutionary level that cross reverberates with a unique blend of hip hop, rock, and R&B. Combine their passion for song writing with a high energy, must see live show, and you have something that can't be explained it must be experienced.
We are currently working to finalize the line-up, but we guarantee to have only top notch bands playing blues/southern rock. Combining the abundance of great music with vendors selling food, snacks and crafts, and the beautiful waters of Lake Hartwell as a backdrop, and this will be an amazing holiday-weekend event.
