American Roots Revue with Larry Long, Robert Robinson, Tonia Hughes, JD Steele, Adam Levy

Vocal and Musical Roots Powerhouse

American Roots Revue works from the core of America’s richest musical traditions of blues, folk, rock, gospel, First Nation and R&B.  This November the revue returns to its roots with powerhouse vocalist and 2017-2018 McKnight Artist Fellow Tonia Hughes; J.D. Steele (eldest renowned sibling of ‘The Steeles’), the “Pavarotti of Gospel” Robert Robinson, and international troubadour and community building Larry Long with special guest Adam Levy. 

Besides offering up his own songs, acclaimed songwriter and front man for the Honeydogs Levy will play guitar with the Revue’s  incendiary all-star band which includes Billy Steele (keyboards), Joe Savage (pedal steel), Yonathan Bekure (bass) and Kenyari Jackson (drums).

Larry Long’s American Roots Revue boasts the artistic range to salute iconic America music heroes like Pete Seeger, Stevie Wonder, Mahalia Jackson, Louis Armstrong, Mavis Staples and George Benson. And the poetic license to present artists in unique combinations with each other, like this must-see bill. All backed by a superlative band and vocalists who will make you feel like you’re going to a revival inside the intimate nightclub that is the Dakota.
