Oteil Burbridge, bass guitarist for the Allman Brothers Band, will discuss his personal journey on the Christian walk at Samford University Thursday, Feb. 15, at 10 a.m. in Reid Chapel. He will also perform briefly on the guitar.

His appearance, open to the public, is part of the Samford student convocation series.

In 1997, Burbridge was named "Best New Bassist" in Bass Player magazine's readers' poll. In addition to playing for the Allman Brothers, Burbridge has recorded with Gregg Allman, Victor Wooten and Phish. He also records with his own group, "Oteil and the Peacemakers."

Burbridge lives in Birmingham, where he attends a Baptist church.
