George Kilby Jr has joined forces with the dynamic, rocking, powerful Danish country band FISTFUL OF DOLLARS. George has worked with the the band’s charismatic singer, Torsten Lefmann for over 17 years and on many diverse projects. During the 90’s George managed and co-wrote with the band “Starfish” in which Torsten was the co-leader. Together they played several bittersweet gigs with Jazz Legend Hugo Rasmussen just weeks before he died in 2015. Currently, George and Fistful are touring with a show called “The Seeger Legacy.” The concert pays tribute to the great contributions by Pete Seeger to both to music and to Society. Both covers of Seeger songs, original songs inspired by Seeger, and songs of protest in the Seeger tradition will be performed in the powerful and moving tribute.
The players, Lefmann on guitar and vocals, Ole Bendix – steel guitar, dobro, Niels Poulsen – guitar, Rune Holberg – bass, Karsten Mansa- drums serve the audience authentic country/honky tonk/country-rock and deliver well known country classics as well as originals penned by Lefmann. The band also covers some of Kilby’s songs.
