Steve Young is most famous for writing the Eagles' classic tune Seven Bridges Road and others. His son Jubal Lee Young was center stage at a SxSE Music Feast with Steve Earle's son, Justin Townes Earle, during their "Sons of Guns" tour. Verlon Thompson - a repeat SxSE guest - was the guitar sidekick of the late, great Guy Clark and a wonderful musician and storyteller himself.
South by Southeast held its 100th Music Feast December, 2016 featuring one of our favorites... the Randall Bramblett Band. Here are some of our other past performers in the SxSE Hall of Fame.
We have been very fortunate to be able to bring in budding musical talent on their way up. One example... shortly after having the Carolina Chocolate Drops headline one of our SxSE Music Feasts, the band was featured on late night TV, Mountain Stage and Austin City Limits. We were lucky big Jeff had the foresight to book Rhiannon Giddens and band before they hit the big time!

He and other SxSE alumni such as Justin Townes Earle can often be seen on ACL, Soundstage, Hippie Jack's and more.

Yonrico Scott was the main percussionist for the Derek Trucks Band and tours with the Royal Southern Brotherhood as well as with his own band. Randall Bramblett has played with Steve Winwood, Sea Level and others. Most recently, he found additional success when Bonnie Raitt included two of his songs God Was in the Water and Used to Rule the World on her albums.
A couple of our favorites have always been The Randall Bramblett Band, Webb Wilder & the Beatnecks, and Malcolm Holcombe. They, along with Verlon Thompson, have headlined multiple SxSE Music Feasts and always delighted our audiences. One thing it seems all of these musicians have in common... they love playing the SxSE Music Feasts because our audience is there to LISTEN to the wonderful music they perform.
