Jimmy Lumpkin, John Hart part of Sunset Series at Gulf Place
The City of Gulf Shores 2019 Sunset Series continues at Gulf Place every Thurday in September. All Sunset Series events will begin at 6 p.m. at Gulf Place Town Green and Public Beach. Admission is free.
The Trio, featuring Carl Jackson, Jerry Salley and Larry Cordle, will take the stage on September 12 as a preview to the Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival.
On September 19, Jimmy Lumpkin will belt out sublime sounds that are altogether his own. In the likes of Bob Dylan, Ray LaMontagne, Ryan Adams, Van Morrison, John Lee Hooker, The Black Keys, and Otis Redding, the Jimmy Lumpkin Band plays an eclectic blend of soulful roots rock and Americana.
Florida-based artist John Hart will wrap up the 2019 Sunset Series on September 26. John spent a few years touring the East Coast with the prominent Sauce Boss. The warm, rich tones of John’s classical guitar playing approach brings an exciting and fresh presence to his live show, while his unique weaving of finger picking and blues influence brings a flavor to the sound like no other. Revered as a young man beyond his time, John’s influences come from a mix of blues legends such as Muddy Waters, B.B. King and Albert Collins, to rock legends Jimi Hendrix and Duane Allman to modern monsters such as Derek Trucks and John Mayer. His latest record, “Frisson”, shines an entirely new light on the depths of his creativity and his reach.
