Welcome friends

Three albums in and Sons of Bill remains true to its roots. Blending classic rock and traditional Virginian folksiness with emotional resonance, the brothers (and friends) have crafted their own sound. 2012’s Sirens opens with a quotation lifted from a William Faulkner speech, and sets the tone for a collection of powerhouse tunes poised to propel the band to wider recognition. The 5th Annual Rock and Roll Christmas captures a band on the rise in a heartfelt and raucous live show, with some of their friends joining them for the ride.

Saturday 12/22 $17, 8pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
