Blues Legend in Wroc³aw

Legendary blues musician Dickey Betts, a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band, is coming to Poland with his Great Southern band to give a concert July 14 at the Eter club in Wroc³aw.

A Grammy Award winner from 1996 and a 1995 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Betts is still in top form and last year Rolling Stone magazine ranked him 61st in a list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time.

When Betts and Berry Oakley came up with the idea of forming a band, they had the good luck to meet the amazing Allman brothers, Duane and Gregg, and so began The Allman Brothers Band. In 1971, Duane died in a motorcycle accident and a year later a similar motorcycle accident killed Oakley. Betts decided he had to take matters into his own hands. Soon after, The Allman Brothers Band released one of their best albums, Brothers And Sisters, which defined the group’s sound for years to come. Passionate about American folk and country music, Betts incorporated an idyllic, southern sound into the album. While the band’s first albums were blues/rock, Brothers And Sisters featured pure Southern rock.

Almost all the greatest and most beautiful songs by The Allman Brothers Band were written by Betts. In the mid-1970s he went on to form a new band called Great Southern, with which he has toured ever since. Quite naturally, the band also perform Allman Brothers tracks.
