Beachland Tavern, Cleveland, OH
One of the first things that strike you is that Brittany Reilly and her band work really damn hard. It’s one thing to embrace the fluffier side of the Grateful Dead rock ethos -- flowers, dancing bears, feel-good sentiments -- but it’s much harder to grind it out on the road and deliver night after night as the Dead did. Furthermore, Brittany has also found a way to release two albums (2008 and 2010) while hitting at least 27 states in our great United States. We’re pleased that this singer-songwriter, influenced by Dylan, the aforementioned Dead, and the entire storied canon of American folk music, has made time to play the Beachland. They’ll also be splitting the bill with soulful earth mama Erika Hughes and her Columbus-based Americana band, The Well-Mannered.
