An appreciation to the Allman Brothers Band, a trip to remember!
One of the pioneers of Southern Rock are reignited and celebrated with energetic honesty by Scotland’s “mercurial & psychedelic” Safehouse. A host of Edinburgh’s finest musical additions join them in The Allmans Project.
Emulating the Allman’s sound with double drum kit, harmony guitars and vocals, the show takes on both the intricate and dramatic side of their music. The set draws from Live at the Filmore alongside classics like Dreams, Black Hearted Woman and Jessica. The band is now touring after years of sell out gigs for the Scottish Capital’s Fringe Festival and Jazz & Blues Festival. They have received glowing reviews from 2021 & 2022 events. As a result, many more dates are being planned.
How the Allmans Project began
The project started after Allman’s tunes in Safehouse’s set became solid favourites for the band and audience alike. Instant enthusiasm from talks with an extra drummer & guitarist set the project off on what was to be a hugely successful trial run in 2007. Members include founding Blues’N’Trouble guitarist John Bruce and drummer Sean Scott, and on Keys Ali Petrie who is currently touring with Albert Lee.
