Opening bands have always had it rough. Who wants to hear the opening band? Not me! (Well, that is usually). When I went to see Bob Dylan at a recent concert, Junior Brown was the opening act. He was great. A mix between Buddy Holly’s rockabilly and Johnny Cash‘s country roots. He plays an instrument he invented which combines a 6-string guitar on one neck and a steel guitar on the other (he calls it a “guit-steel”). This is no gimmick. Brown moves so seamlessly between the different parts of his instrument to create his unique sound.
Here are some videos worth checking out:
