Charlie Daniels performs in Brighton

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.

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.
