John Jorgenson’s Bluegrass Band J2B2
and Bourbon Tasting
Langley, WA: Whidbey Island Center for the Arts (WICA) is excited to welcome John Jorgenson’s bluegrass band J2B2, an all-star bluegrass super-group featuring four legendary, award-winning musicians; and local bourbon tasting on Friday, January 11 at 6:30pm.
John Jorgenson, a DjangoFest NW favorite, on acoustic guitar, mandolin, and vocals; Herb Pedersen on banjo, acoustic guitar, and vocals; Mark Fain on bass; and Keith Sewell on acoustic guitar and vocals – delivering bluegrass like no one has ever heard it before. The band’s undeniable live shows have received stellar reviews and have the bluegrass world buzzing. The four combine forces to form a spot-on union of impeccable musicianship, incomparable songwriting, incredible harmony vocals (a fresh twist combining bluegrass with elements of West Coast folk rock) and seasoned showmanship. This is the “high lonesome sound” of American roots music at its finest. All Seats $22. Zech Hall Piano Bar opens one hour prior to the performance.
J2B2’s debut album, From The Crow’s Nest, was recorded in Sheryl Crow’s home studio in Nashville, Tennessee and in 2015, was released as part of a John Jorgenson limited edition, 3-CD box set called DIVERTUOSO (Cleopatra Records), which has received vast critical acclaim.
The bourbon tasting will feature smaller boutique distilleries.
