the Revelators

Location: R.A. Fountain

An eclectic show of old time blues, folk, country, and American roots performed by the Revelators, organized by Raleigh native and occasional Greenvile/Maury resident David Turner.

“This is a one-time show for a one-time band,” said Turner at the time. He used the Revelators name for a loose aggregation of musicians he performed with in New York. “Completely organic, completely down home.”

The Revelators this night included the Reverend Bob Clyde, recently retired ECU minister at the Baptist Student Union, on harmonica and vocals; Mike Hamer, ECU English professor and long-time veteran of the Greenville music scene, on hammered dulcimer and vocals; Jim Watson, a Maury resident and technician with ECU’s Geology department, on accordion and piano; and Bill Redding, the Greenville-based health-care professional who has in recent years established his own reputation as a solo artist, on guitar and vocals.

Turner, like Clyde, was a former member of the Greenville-based Zen Pimps.
