Free Southern Village Outdoor Concerts on the Village Green with Idlewild South Band @ Southern Village Green
Aug 6 @ 6:00 pm

Idlewild South
Allman Brothers Tribute Band

No cover charge

Idlewild South, an Allman Brothers tribute band, was co-founded by keyboardist and vocalist Don Eason, a veteran musician whose initial influence of an Allman Brothers Band’s live performance goes back to his first concert experience seeing the band on Easter weekend of 1970 at The Winter’s End concert in Bithlo, Florida.

A duo of drummers, including co-founder Robert Kintner and John Flowers, provides the foundation with bassist Tim Smith rounding out the rhythm section. Slide guitarist Dave George and lead guitarist/vocalist Pete Waggoner bring forth the dual guitar harmonies and searing guitar leads Duane Allman and Dickie Betts pioneered in the late 1960’s.

In the tradition of The Allman Brothers Band, Idlewild South’s live shows can exceed a staggering non-stop 3 1/2 to 4 hours. The set lists are different every night, drawing from The Allman Brothers Band’s self-titled debut album, their second album ‘Idlewild South’, ‘Live At Fillmore East’, ‘Eat A Peach’ and ‘Brothers and Sisters’. All of these albums were recorded between 1969 and 1974. A few select songs from their albums that were recorded between 1989 and 2000 are also included.

All concerts on the Southern Village Green are sponsored by Hyatt Place-Chapel Hill in Southern Village!
