Future Yard are super stoked to be bringing this mighty musician back to the North West!
Pedal and lap steel guitar ace Roosevelt Collier, so proficient he’s affectionately known as “The Dr,” brings his potent mix of blues , gospel , rock , and in his own words, ‘ dirty funk, swampy grime’ to Future Yard on April 28th .
They first witnessed the wonders of Roosevelt with world supergroup BOKANTÉ, lead by MICHEAL LEAGUE (from the Grammy-winning Snarky Puppy).
Brought up in the House of God Church in Perrine, Florida, Roosevelt built his “sacred steel” guitar prowess alongside his uncles and cousins in The Lee Boys, known for their spirited, soul-shaking live performances.
On his own, Collier’s become a sought-after talent both on record and on stage; at festivals, he is a regular “Artist at Large,” performing alongside musical luminaries in the fields of rock, blues and pop, including Snarky Puppy, The Allman Brothers, The String Cheese Incident, Buddy Guy, Umphrey’s McGee, Los Lobos, Robert Randolph, the Tedeschi-Trucks Band, and the Del McCoury Band. .
