Heather Gillis, young guitarist-vocalist at the vanguard of today’s quickly-growing blues-rock Jam Band movement, is touring nationally, and will be performing locally at Winter Park Pub, located at 78260 US Highway 40, Saturday, July 14th. Showtime at 8:00pm. Tickets ONLY $5.00

Information and Tickets Available by calling (970) 726-4929 or visit http://www.facebook.com/winterparkpub today.

Gillis previously co-fronted Butch Trucks and the Freight Train, formed by the late Allman Brothers drummer Butch Trucks, who discovered her in Florida in 2015 and personally recruited Heather to play in the Freight Train until Trucks’ passing in January, 2017. “(Gillis) proves to be the perfect touch to the band with her stage presence, energy, and tremendous talent,” wrote American Blues Scene.

The Tallahassee Democrat said, “anytime Heather Gillis plugs in an electric guitar and starts to play, you know immediately it’s her. She has a distinct tone and muscular sound that usually takes other, older guitarists many more years to develop. You should hear her belt out ‘Whipping Post.'”

Formerly from Florida and now residing in Atlanta, Gillis has played alongside and befriended members of The Allman Brothers Band, Col Bruce Hampton, The Lee Boys, North Mississippi All-Stars, and Matt Schofield, to name a few. Heather’s live shows are high-energy and consist of her originals as well as some choice cover tunes.
