From the first time they played “Dixie Chicken” nearly 35 years ago, renowned Little Feat guitar players Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett have been making legendary music! Following spectacular careers leading Little Feat, and playing with artists like Bonnie Raitt, Bob Dylan and Taj Mahal, these two guitar virtuosos are together again. Now an acoustic duo, they bring a rare opportunity for audiences to savor songs from the Little Feat catalog and much more, all with their distinctly different artistic stamp. This delightful duo like to unplug and share a laid back evening of Little Feat hits and more.

Paul Barrère plays guitar and slide guitar, and sings lead and background vocals for Little Feat. Paul Barrère joined Little Feat for the band's third album Dixie Chicken, and has been with the band since. During Little Feat's early 80's hiatus, Paul led the group Chicken Legs. Since Little Feat's return with "Let it Roll", Paul has stepped more into the spotlight. Paul's guitar, vocals, and songwriting are now an important part of the Little Feat sound.

Fred Tackett plays guitar, trumpet, and mandolin for Little Feat. Hailing from Arkansas, Fred Tackett worked as a side man on many Little Feat albums before becoming a full member of the band for Let It Roll. Along with his fine guitar work, Fred's mandolin and trumpet have become a featured part of the Little Feat sound.
