Lawrence 'Luckyman' Beall

When: Fri., Oct. 15 2010

Columbia-based singer/guitarist Lawrence “Luckyman” Beall is a real ramblin’ man. He’s made a lot of stops all over the world. He means what he sings, and he plays what he feels. Handling a raw and twangy mix of rockabilly, country, and blues, Beall visits the Sullivan’s Island Home Team BBQ this Friday behind his latest album, Huntsville Sessions. “I’ve played music my whole life all over the country, parts of Canada, and some of Europe,” says Beall. “I’ve also had about 200 different jobs, like tying steel in a big ditch or working as a stagehand and as a high rigger. I’ve driven a truck. I’ve worked 2,600 feet underground in the world’s largest copper mine, built scaffold 150 feet in the air for a rock show. Sometimes the music was in between the jobs, and sometimes the jobs were in between the music.” All of that experience adds up to something pretty powerful when applied to a guitar and a mic. —T.
