THE HOLMES BROTHERS are true treasures of American roots music. For 35 years, The Holmes Brothers� joyous and moving blend of blues, gospel, soul, R&B, rock �n� roll and country has been captivating audiences around the world. Their spine-tingling three-part harmony singing, mixing Wendell�s gruff and gravelly vocals with Popsy�s soaring falsetto and Sherman�s rich baritone, brings the spirit of gospel-inflected deep soul music into every song they perform. The band�s new Alligator Records album, 'Brotherhood' is another stellar chapter in The Holmes Brothers� storied and still-evolving history. CHATHAM COUNTY LINE enters their second decade as an ensemble, the band bring a deep reverence for traditional American roots music and timeless bluegrass instrumentation to insightful, poetic original songs that are powerfully contemporary yet rich with the complex resonance of their southern heritage. Over the course of six studio albums and performances around the world, they have pursued a singular style that is entirely their own, yet connects with audiences from all walks. 'Tightrope' is the title of the band's new album released on Yep Roc Records.
