The Malpass Brothers
At The Malpass Brothers’ concert on Saturday, Aug. 20 at 7:30 p.m. in Hoover Auditorium, count on real country music, big hair, fancy boots and maybe even an Elvis twitch or two.
As young boys, Christopher and Taylor Malpass soaked up the music of their granddad’s phonograph records. Today, they promote the work and music of classic country artists while creating new music and making their own mark in the lineage of American music.
Their smooth vocal blend and skillful musicianship layer infectiously into the deep respect they pay to the legends who have paved the way – Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Hank Williams, Sr. and more. Add the funny, off-the-cuff quips between siblings, and the engaging concert becomes a magnetic time-traveling journey.
The Malpass Brothers toured with the late Don Helms, former steel guitarist for Hank Williams, have opened for music legend Merle Haggard on multiple tours and appeared on stages from the Shetland Islands to Ryman Auditorium to Merlefest. Gifted musicians and songwriters, the brothers have shared billing with artists including Ray Price, Willie Nelson, Doyle Lawson, Rhonda Vincent, Marty Stuart, Doc Watson and more.
The title cut video from their Memory That Bad album hit CMT Pure Country’s Top 10. Their self-titled recording, produced by bluegrass legend Doyle Lawson, was released by Crossroads’ Organic Records in 2015.
