As part of the College of Coastal Georgia’s Founder’s Day Weekend marking the 50th anniversary of the College’s inception, CCG welcomes multi-talented musician Randall Bramblett.
Bramblett will be performing with his band this Friday night, October 21st at 7pm at the St. Simons Island Lighthouse. Bramblett, who is from originally from Jesup, Georgia but now resides in Athens, plays piano, guitar, saxophone, harmonica, mandolin and several other instruments. While Bramblett may not be a household name, he is legendary within music circles for his songwriting and musicianship. He released a pair of acclaimed solo albums in the mid-‘70s, then joined the jazz-rock outfit Sea Level, becoming their principal songwriter and vocalist. From there, Bramblett embarked on a path as a big-league, musical utility man (primarily sax and keys) and landed on the speed dial of some of the greatest names in rock history, including Traffic, Steve Winwood, Levon Helm, Chuck Leavell and Bonnie Raitt.
Admission to the show is $10 at the gate. Members of the college alumni association, students, faculty and staff will be admitted free with valid identification.
