BluesGrass Concert

True to their name, BluesGrass is a blues and bluegrass duo featuring local musicians Jon Swift and Mark White! Both Mark (acoustic guitar, harmonica, vocals) and Jon (upright bass, vocals) are accomplished singers, and their voices blend in close harmony along with strong and evocative instrumental accompaniment. They draw upon both contemporary and traditional sources for a well-rounded acoustic music experience.
