Randall Bramblett to perform at second concert November 13
By Tad Wilkes, Nightlife & Lifestyles Editor
“Randall is the most talented and prolific songwriter I have the privilege of knowing,” said Bill Berry of R.E.M. Mighty praise for Randall Bramblett, who is set to perform at Ole Miss on November 13, when the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi will host its second Music of the South Concert at 6 p.m. at the Gertrude Ford Center Studio Theater.
“Caroline Herring did the first concert in the series a few weeks ago, and it was great and came close to selling out,” says Becca Walton, associate director, projects. “The point of the series is to provide an Oxford non-bar earlier evening venue so there’s a bit more variety to the music scene.”
Bramblett is a Georgia native who since the 1970s has played keyboards and other instruments with Traffic, Sea Level, the Allman Brothers Band, and numerous other groups. Growing up with James Brown as his hero, Bramblett writes and plays music that cuts across multiple genres. In recent years, Bramblett has been making his own recordings, with a new record Now It’s Tomorrow on New West Records. He will be doing a solo show for the November 13 concert, singing and playing keyboard.
Tickets are $10 and are on sale at the UM box office in the student union. Tickets also will be available on the day of the performance at the Ford Center box office.
