John Howie Jr. and the Rosewood Bluff

When: Sat., July 17, 6 p.m. 2010

There's always been a measure of Gram Parsons in the music of John Howie Jr. Raleigh's rocking Finger, with Howie Jr. at the drum kit, contributed a ruggedly handsome "Still Feeling Blue" to the Parsons tribute album Conmemorativo. A few years later, Howie Jr.'s first country band, the Two Dollar Pistols, borrowed the Flying Burrito Brothers' arrangement of "To Love Somebody." But these days, the Parsons presence is even more profound, with the Rosewood Bluff name inspired by a Gram bio and the sound driven by Nathan Golub's proto-country-rock pedal steel. Catch the hickory wind starting at 6 p.m., and be ready when the hat is passed. Rick Cornell
