GREGG ALLMAN and country star ERIC CHURCH will appear in a special conversation and acoustic performance celebrating the SKIRBALL CULTURAL CENTER's BILL GRAHAM AND THE ROCK & ROLL REVOLUTION exhibition at the venue, co-presented by the GRAMMY FOUNDATION as part of its "LIVING HISTORIES" program. The event will take place at the SKIRBALL CULTURAL CENTER, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24th at 8p (PT).
Tickets are on sale for $40 general and $35 to SKIRBALL members at www.skirball.org.
The talks will be moderated by GRAMMY FOUNDATION VP SCOTT GOLDMAN and the evening will conclude with live acoustic performances by both ALLMAN and CHURCH, which will be recorded and archived as part of the GRAMMY FOUNDATION "LIVING HISTORIES" program. The program preserves on visual media the life stories of key recording industry professionals and visionaries who helped create the history of recorded sound. To date, the FOUNDATION has completed more than 200 interviews with artists, producers, executives, and technology pioneers.
ALLMAN and CHURCH come together at the SKIRBALL to pay tribute to the enduring legacy of legendary concert promoter BILL GRAHAM. In 1971, their legendary live album, "At FILLMORE EAST," was recorded at BILL's famed venue, which contributed to a young ERIC CHURCH's interest in country music. In this special conversation, the two will discuss GRAHAM's influence on their respective careers and those of a long lineage of musicians.
Before the program, the GRAHAM exhibition will be open to ticketholders from 5:30 to 8p (PT).
