We are so glad to be able to attract repeat visits from musicians such as Jon Shain. He’s been with us since way back at the “old room”. Musicians of his caliber have helped us build a loyal following of music lovers. AND since Jon’s been here last he has won THE International Blues Competition (Solo duo) in Memphis Tennessee. Wow.
“Jon took first place in the solo/duo category of the 2019 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, besting over 260 competitors for the win. Watch video of Jon’s winning performance and read the News & Observer’s feature.Jon Shain is a veteran singer-songwriter who’s been turning heads for years with his words, his fiery acoustic guitar work, and his evolved musical style – combining improvised piedmont blues with bluegrass, swing, and ragtime. Shain’s most recent solo disc, Gettin’ Handy with the Blues: A Tribute to the Legacy of WC Handy, was released in January, 2018. Shain’s newest release is the gorgeous roots album, Tomorrow Will Be Yesterday Soon, recorded along with long-time collaborator FJ Ventre.
