MARQUETTE, Mich.—The Holmes Brothers concert at Northern Michigan University has been rescheduled for Saturday, March 15. The rhythm and blues trio whose career has spanned more than 30 years will perform as part of the Northern Nights series at 7:30 p.m. in the University Center Great Lakes Rooms. The show will open with a set by Bill Hart and Fast Eddie. Tickets for the original concert date of Feb. 14 will be accepted at the door. Tickets may also be purchased at all NMU outlets or at the door. Prices are as follows: students/kids, $5 in advance/$6 at the door; NMU faculty/staff/Seniors 60+, $13/$15; general public, $18/$20. A cash bar will be available.

The Holmes Brothers band is composed of bassist/vocalist Sherman Holmes, guitarist/pianist/vocalist Wendell Holmes and drummer/vocalist and “brother in spirit” Popsy Dixon. Their three-part harmony brings the spirit of gospel music into everything they perform, but they blend that with Saturday night roadhouse rock, blues, R&B and country. The band has won multiple Blues Music Awards and shared the stage with Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, Willie Nelson, Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel, Merle Haggard, Keith Richards, Al Green, Ben Harper, Lucinda William and others.
