The Milligan Vaughan ProjectJanuary 25, 2018
Singer Malford Milligan and guitarist Tyrone Vaughan both have long histories in the Austin music community. Milligan, one of Austin’s most spectacular singers since the 1980s who formerly worked with Double Trouble after their Stevie Ray Vaughan days, teams up with guitarist Tyrone Vaughan, Stevie’s nephew and the son of blues-rock guitar great Jimmie Vaughan. Though best-known for the blues-rock he made with the Austin supergroup, Storyville, 58-year-old Milligan is a powerhouse vocalist who has recorded with everyone from country star Hal Ketchum to eclectic Americana artist Alejandro Escovedo to prog-jazz rocker Eric Johnson. The two musicians have teamed up to make a blues record titled “MVP,” which stands for Milligan Vaughan Project. We are thrilled that the duo, backed by guitarist Jorge Castillo, bassist Jeff Hayes and drummer Nico Leophonte is venturing out of it’s home base of Austin to play for us here at AACLive!
