Through the City Lights and Stars Concert series, Burritt on the Mountain continues to bring world class musicians to the Huntsville community at affordable prices. Burritt is pleased to bring Justin Johnson and Microwave Dave and the Nukes to City Lights. This concert is sponsored by the Athens State University Livingston Concert and Lecture Series and the series is sponsored by Redstone Federal Credit Union.
On July 5th, one day away from the fourth of July, Burritt will celebrate a uniquely American instrument, the cigar box guitar. Multi-instrumentalist and award winning blues slide guitar player, Justin Johnson, has become widely known for his captivating solo performances and styles spanning the spectrum from blues, rock, funk, surf, and gypsy jazz to traditional jazz and world music. He will be headlining a cigar box festival in England this fall. Dave Gallaher is known for his stunning cigar box solos and his band the Nukes is an Alabama institution. They have performed on NPR and have released several critically acclaimed CD's and tour regularly from Florida to the East Coast. Microwave Dave and Justin are excited about getting to perform together at this show. This will be a great way to kick off your holiday weekend!
