Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band will bring their country blues style to Woodward Theatre at the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum on Saturday, August 24.
After 12 years of playing as many as 300 shows each year, Rev. Peyton, the world’s foremost country blues finger-style picker, along with the biggest little band in the country has pieced together one of the most dedicated followings in roots style music.
Peyton’s blues pedigree is well established. Woodshedding since he was 12, Peyton has kept alive a tradition of fingerpicking pioneered by the likes of Mississippi John Hurt with the energy and attitude of a Howlin’ Wolf.
Beside him on stage are his wife, “Washboard” Breezy Peyton playing with all the nuance and percussive power of a New Orleans drum line, and keeping the train moving is Max Senteney on a lean drum kit including a 5-gallon maple syrup bucket. Together they play Peyton’s wildman country blues that’s as much ZZ Top as it is Bukka White.

Bar and concessions will be open at 5 p.m. with the concert beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at bluegrasshall.org or by calling 270-926-7891.
