SOUTHERN BLOOD: CELEBRATING GREGG ALLMAN
IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE AMERICANA MUSIC ASSOCIATION AND ROUNDER RECORDS
Gregg Allman’s Southern Blood serves as a remarkable final testament from an artist whose contributions have truly shaped American music throughout the past four decades. The album marks Allman’s first all-new recording since 2011’s GRAMMY® Award-nominated solo landmark, Low Country Blues. Produced by Don Was and recorded in Muscle Shoals where Duane Allman and the earliest seeds of the Allman Brothers Band were sown, Southern Blood is among the most uniquely personal of the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s career. In celebration of Allman’s new album and his legacy, the GRAMMY Museum is pleased to welcome a panel of members, all influential in Allman’s career, to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate evening that will pay homage to the late singer/songwriter through stories and music. Presented by the GRAMMY Museum in conjunction with the Americana Music Association and Rounder Records, the panel will be moderated by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman and will include Michael Lehman, Don Was, Scott Sharrard (guitarist for the band), and Gregg Allman’s son, Devon Allman. Following the panel, Sharrard will perform some of his favorite songs from Allman’s career.
