Heather Gillis @ Heist Brewery
WED – 7/31 | TICKETS
For those unfamiliar with Heather Gillis, she basically does it all: singer, songwriter, arranger, guitar player, and lap steel player.
Gillis first made a name for herself as a touring member of Butch Trucks and The Freight Train Band. She was already a big fan of the Allman Brothers, having grown up listening to her share of the delta blues and southern rock, when the late Trucks asked her to join the band in 2015.
Gillis’ guitar playing shows the fruits of her devotion to the art form. She has an incredibly fluid tone, channeling both the flexibility of a player like Duane Allman and the passionate outbursts of Carlos Santana. She’s equally adept at slashing, brutal solos, and chunky funk riffs.
In 2017, Gillis went back to focusing on her solo career playing to sold out venues and making appearances at various music festivals across the country.
