Charlie Daniels performs in Brighton

. November 1, 2015.

Southern rock and bluegrass legend, Charlie Daniels, along with his backing band, will make his way north to the Brighton Center for the Performing Arts to perform his legendary catalogue of hits. Best known for his energetic fiddle playing on hits like The Devil Went Down to Georgia, Daniels, now 79, continues to entertain audiences around the country with his unique blend of country, bluegrass, and old-time rock and roll. Daniels got his start in the 1950s as a songwriter and session musician, playing guitar and fiddle with the likes of the Marshall Tucker Band, before branching out on his own in the early 1970s. His prolific output has helped push country and bluegrass music into the mainstream. Daniels continues to tour  and in 2014 released Off the Grid – Doin’ It Dylan, a collection of cover songs honoring Bob Dylan, who Daniels recorded with as a studio musician back in the 70s.
