Travis Tritt, the man and his music arrives March 10 at the Colonial in Pittsfield [Berkshire on Stage]

Travis Tritt is a pretty simple and unpretentious artist but that hardly describes his amazingly complicated talent and creativity. Far more than a solid country singer, he can pick a mean banjo with the best of the bluegrass boys, and has more than enough blue eyed soul to go around. He is what you might call a musician’s musician.

“Growing up just outside Atlanta, to the north of us you’ve got the Grand Ol’ Opry in Nashville,” Tritt explains. “A little bit South you’ve got Macon, Georgia – home of the Allman Brothers, the Marshall Tucker Band and Capricorn Records. And off to west you’ve got Delta blues. Sprinkle Southern gospel over the top of that, and you’re talking about where I came from. I loved all of that music.”
