When Kristian Bush takes the Eddie’s Attic stage next month, it will be his 15th anniversary performing his annual post-Thanksgiving concerts.
As much as fans appreciate spending time with the Sugarland mainstay in an intimate setting, his hand-picked guests also provide a jolt of interest.
This year, Bush has commissioned Lindsay Ell and Michelle Malone to join him for his 6 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. shows on Nov. 27. His 7 p.m. performance on Nov. 28 will include Andrew Hyra – Bush’s partner in the cult fave folk-rock duo Billy Pilgrim – and the 9:30 p.m. performance will spotlight Bush solo.
Tickets for all shows are $25-$32 and are on sale now at www.eddiesattic.com.
Bush is also holding a Prizeo campaign to raise money for MusiCares. The grand prize is a flyaway to the Eddie’s Attic shows (not really applicable to locals), but Atlanta-area fans can check out the other donation rewards, including signed lyric sheets and guitars and a dinner date with the man himself.
Bush, who released his solo debut “Southern Gravity” last year, is currently working on the musical “Troubadour.” The production, written by Atlanta’s Janece Shaffer, will premiere at the Alliance Theatre in January.
