THE MULLIGAN BROTHERS WILL BE FEATURED ON APRIL ACOUSTIC NIGHT
(Tuscaloosa, Ala.) The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa will present The Mulligan Brothers in concert on Acoustic Night, April 20, 2017, at 7:30 p.m. The event will take place at the Bama Theatre’s Greensboro Room with doors opening at 7 p.m. Cover charge is $15.
The Mulligan Brothers is an Americana Folk-Rock band from Mobile, Ala. In golfers’ terms, a “mulligan” is a second chance, and the band represents a second chance for each member of the group. Veterans of other bands, this is where they found the music they always wanted to play.
The songwriting and warm, honest, straight-to-the heart voice of lead singer Ross Newell draws listeners into the group’s signature sound, where the harmonies of Greg DeLuca, Ben Leininger and Melody Duncan make the songs soar or haunt from the shadows. De Luca plays drums and Leininger is on the bass. Fiddler Melody Duncan recently joined the band, bringing a female voice and perspective.
The Mulligan Brothers have released two albums, “The Mulligan Brothers” and “Via Portland,” recorded in Portland with Grammy-winning producer Steve Berlin. They will soon release a “Live from The Netherlands” album, recorded during the recent tour that included shows at the famed Paradiso in Amsterdam and a spot on The Ramblin’ Roots Festival in Utrecht. They currently have over 3 million plays on Spotify, including over 1 million of the song “Lay Here.”
The band kicked off 2017 with a return to the prestigious 30A Songwriter Festival in Florida followed by an appearance on “Music City Roots Nashville.” They returned to Ireland for January-February tour dates followed by a spot on “Cayamo 2017 – A journey Through Song,” a 7 day Roots Music Cruise in the company of such artists as Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell and Steve Earle. This is followed by a third appearance at New Orleans Jazz Fest, a three week Scandinavian tour and dates all across the U.S.
