WILMINGTON — Last month, Blackberry Smoke brought their Georgia flavor to North Carolina, performing to a sold-out crowd at Greenfield Lake Amphitheater.
The band — Charlie Starr (guitar, vocals), Paul Jackson (guitar), Richard Turner (bass), Brit Turner (drums) and Brandon Still (keyboards), Benji Shanks (guitar) — were touring in support of their latest record “You Hear Georgia.”
“There are definitely a few genres that really resonate with folks around here,” photographer Tom Dorgan said, who was capturing photos at the show for Port City Daily. “The southern rock style of Blackberry Smokes fits in perfectly.”
The band performed through 20 tracks from their seven albums released since starting in 2000.
Opening the show was American country music singer Elizebeth Cook who also happened to be performing on her 50th birthday..
“She was great,” Dorgan added. “She told the crowd she is the daughter of a hillbilly singer that married a moonshiner.”
Cook’s mother played mandolin and ended up marrying a man who played in the Atlanta Federal Penitentiary prison band while serving time for running moonshine. Cook has released seven albums, including her latest, 2020’s “Aftermath.”
Below is the setlist and pictures from the show.
