Last year saw esteemed singer and bassist, Sherman Holmes, release his first solo recording since the passing of his brother and musical partners, both in 2015. While “The Richmond Sessions” is dedicated to the memories of Wendell Holmes and Popsy Dixon, the album is no somber affair. Fans of Holmes Brothers will feel right at home with The Sherman Holmes Project’s blend of bluegrass, gritty rock, gospel and blues. As much as Sherman Holmes has a knack for seamlessly blending an eclectic mix of genres, he’s also bringing together a wide ranging collaboration of virtuoso musicians and instrumentalists. We’re especially pleased to have Northern California’s own homegrown dobro wizard, Rob Ickes, and young guitar maestro, Trey Hensley, performing together on Friday, and then again as part of The Sherman Holmes Project on Saturday.
