Live at the Center: Garret LeBeau
December 17, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Live in the Steddy Theater! Award-winning blues musician Garrett Lebeau is a member of the Shoshone tribe, born and raised on the Wind River Indian Reservation near Lander, Wyoming. His music draws instant comparisons to Boz Scaggs, Al Green or Van Morrison vocally with a sound that is completely and genuinely his own.
LeBeau’s soul style certainly captures the groove, all right, with a gritty funk vibe and vocals that might draw comparisons to Boz Scaggs (with whom he’s toured) or even Ray LaMontagne, but it also digs deep, examining the dichotomies of his childhood experiences, the scars inflicted by his indoctrination into what he considers a cult, and the salvation he’s found through music. On his new EP, he addresses his history head on, as well as the ongoing struggles of Native Americans and our common desire for love and happiness.
