The Hamilton Brothers and nephew Issac Eady, Tullahoma natives, will perform a free concert on the Moore County campus of Motlow State in celebration of African American History Month on Feb. 11 at 12:30 p.m. in Eoff Hall, Powers Auditorium.
“To present Isaac and the Hamilton Brothers in concert is an honor for Motlow State as well as the community,” said Brenda Cannon, executive director of community relations at Motlow. “Bringing this family home is a celebration. The performance allows them to serve the community where they grew up and learned the craft that has taken them to new platforms. We invite the community to come and help us celebrate our very own.”
Hailed as celebrated musicians, the Hamilton Brothers, Walter “Hinkie,” Tyronne, and Tim, have traveled the world and have performed with noted artists including Lalah Hathaway, Aaron Neville, the late B.B. King, After 7, Dr. Bobby Jones, Christiana Aguilera, Kelly Price, and others. Their music is an electric mix of gospel, jazz, R&B, and pop-funk, all blended and smoothly presented. Additionally, they have stepped into the role of producers, currently working with Kim Fleming and Winchester native and university student Ashley Brooks.
Isaac Eady is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. In 2016 he moved to New Orleans, where he has been teaching and collaborating with world-class musicians. He has performed with well-known artists Jabo Starks, Nigel Hall, Rhiannon Giddens, Papa Mali, Russell Batiste, Jenifer Harswick, Stanton Moore, Warren Batiste, and Luther Dickinson. Born into a family with a deep tradition of music, Eady gravitated towards music early, playing the drums by age two. By age 14, he was playing the organ and directing the choir at church.
Collectively, the Hamilton Brothers agree that they all knew they would be playing music for the rest of their lives, growing up in the Tullahoma community as little boys making music with their dad, the late Walter Hamilton, Sr., aka “Little Walter.” According to Walter, “We all knew that’s what we wanted to do. We are blessed to have both the talent and the opportunities that we’ve had over the years, and we have strived to make the most of them.”
