The Holmes Brothers
With a name like Holmes you're thinking, "They better be good." They are. The Holmes Brothers blend Blues Rock with three-part Gospel harmonies to create something that's extremely difficult to listen to standing still. The Brothers are a power trio made up of Wendell and Sherman Holmes, as well as their friend Popsy Dixon singing falsettos and beating the skins with moving and rhythmic precision. They can take an old Southern Church standard and make it sound sinful in it's aural indulgence. The Brothers are festival favorites and have been recording music since 1989.
