Hill Center is thrilled to welcome The Revelers as part of our free, outdoor American Roots Music Series!
Ultimate Louisiana supergroup – The Revelers have been bringing their party around the world for over 12 years. With their long-awaited follow up to 2016’s Grammy nominated record out last year, the band has taken their place firmly at the top of a game where they make the rules.
As individuals, they are each in high demand having performed and recorded with T-Bone Burnett, Natalie Merchant, Linda Ronstadt, Preston Frank, Walter Mouton, Mamadou Diabate, the Duhks, Cedric Watson, and Tim O’Brien, to name a few. As a group they play with a sense of empathy and depth that can only be fostered after years of making music together. They have all appeared on the 2011 season finale of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations, and they also were handpicked by David Simon (producer/creator, The Wire) to be featured musicians for the third and fourth seasons of HBO’s Tremé.
“There has to be at least one band in the country that reveres the past and is unafraid about dragging it into the future. Mark down the Revelers as that band, musicians who aren’t afraid of mixing up accordion, fiddles, saxophones and guitars.”– Vanguard Records
