(SAN MATEO, CA) The San Mateo County Fair is pleased to announce that Dickey Betts & Great Southern will play at San Mateo County Fair on June 8, 2013. Betts, a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, has one of the most distinctive voices in music today.
Known as one of the most influential guitar players of all time, Betts has mastered a seamless style of lyrical melody and rhythm -- marrying country, jazz, blues, and rock into one unparalleled sound. The New York Times has called Betts "one of the great rock guitarists...[who thinks like a jazz improviser, in thoughtfully structured, cleanly articulated, intelligently paced phrases...[when] Mr. Betts was tearing into one of his improvisations, the music was about as exciting as rock and roll gets.” visit: www.dickeybetts.com
