On Tuesday, November 13th, the Jimmy Herring Band, featuring the legendary guitarist of Widespread Panic, will be accompanied by Great Big House and Blendmode for a special solo performance at The Blockley. Known for being a superstar in the jam band world for having performed with The Grateful Dead and The Allman Brothers, Herring's talent is undeniable. Herring recently set out on a huge US tour in support of his second solo album, Subject To Change Without Notice, which was released on August 21st.
For this release, Herring set out to make an instrumental album inspired by the first-person soulfulness of the human voice. “Nothing will ever be the human voice,” he reflects. “But I want to get as close as I can to that sound with a guitar. That’s the most wonderful instrument of all.” The result is eclectic and wide-ranging, but tied together with an uncommon melodicism and uncluttered compositional clarity rare in instrumental music.
When: Tuesday, Nov. 13th, 9pm, Tickets
Where: The Blockley, 3801 Chestnut Street
