Derek & Susan Confirm June and July Lineup
Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi have confirmed the lineup for their June and July performances. Due to a previous commitment for drummer JJ Johnson, upcoming concerts for the Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi Band will feature a slightly different lineup than the first batch of shows. From 5/30 at Santa Cruz Blues Festival to 6/5 at Mountain Jam, Derek Trucks’ younger brother Duane Tracks will fill in on drums. The younger Trucks currently plays with Col. Bruce Hampton & The Quark Alliance. He also performed with his family in the Soul Stew Revival group.
Then, from the 7/2 show at Cape Cod Melody Tent through 7/13 at Artpark in Upstate NY, New Orleans’ Doug Belote (Jerry Douglas Band, Jack Pearson Band, Jon Cleary) will hold down the drums until JJ Johnson returns at Ottawa Bluesfest on 7/15.
