Sips & Songs on August 9 features Brother Trucker’s fully-loaded, five-piece format, one of the most flexible, energetic and inspirational combos in the Midwest. Their tunes chronicle the small town lives you pass while driving across the Midwest's "flat horizon.” Lead singer Andy Fleming's songs find the drama and poignancy in these small town lives and the band supports him with blue collar Americana music that's sympathetic yet steely. Brother Trucker has toured the Midwest extensively since 2000, playing festivals, bars, political rallies, coffee houses, private parties large and small and a myriad of benefits and causes. They have opened for such notable names as James McMurtry, Leon Russell, Al Green, Gurf Morlix, Greg Brown, Robert Earl Keene and the Rev. Horton Heat.
