Latest Collaboration, John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band On Tour Now!

September 24, 2013 at 11:26 AM

John Jorgenson is adding more tour dates weekly with his newest project, The John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band! This new bluegrass group features four legendary musicians: John Jorgenson on guitar, mandolin and vocals; Herb Pedersen on banjo, guitar and vocals; Jon Randall on guitar and vocals; and Mark Fain on bass. They are making their first IBMA Wide Open Bluegrass Festival appearance as a group on Saturday, September 28th with performances at both the City Plaza Stage and Hargett Street Stage that evening.

Also coming up, the band will be performing on Tuesday, October 1st at the Grand Ole Opry and will be returning to the Station Inn on Wednesday, October 2nd.

Following their debut Station Inn performance, Taylor Coughlin at IBMA wrote “As a pioneer of American gypsy jazz guitar, your first thought of John Jorgenson may not be of him whipping out ‘Whiskey Before Breakfast’ on mandolin, flawlessly, to a standing-room-only crowd at Nashville’s Station Inn. But he did, and it was with his newly-formed John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band made up of legendary musicians Herb Pedersen on banjo, Jon Randall on guitar, and Mark Fain on bass.”

We hope that you can make it out to these shows or any of our other upcoming dates. Check the tour tab to see what’s coming up and thanks for listening!

I was lucky to be at both the Grand Ole Opry and Station Inn shows last week. This was my first trip to Nashville, visiting from Los Angeles. You were incredible, and the highlight of the trip. You play beautifully together. Your harmonies are mind blowing, and I will never forget either performance. Please cut a record soon! Thank you so much.

I just learned there is no more gypsy jazz. But, now I would like to hear a little of
the new blue grass -- is it here on your site?

I signed up early for the Whidbey first row seats and learned you are not coming. Then
I goggled you up and found you have already been to Bozeman where I would fly in to hear

Looks like I will have to buy an album to hear you -- so, do you have a new album?

Please come to Whidbey and tell Jason and others I will miss them. Thank God I have your
CD's to play in the car.

John, I guess you have morphed out of Tjango. So, if Bluegrass
is your next artistic growth, I do hope you will still come
back to Whidbey Island so we can hear what is happen'n. I
feel so lucky I was able to hear your Tjango and get your
CD's but now I want to hear where you are going.

Hope you visit unless this place is not a Bluegrass type place.

Saw the band at Backstage at the Green Hotel in Kinross, Scotland. What an amazing sound and they, as well as the audience, were enjoying every minute of it. They are really nice guys too. Thanks for coming to Scotland.

I loved your performance at Eric Schoenberg's Guitar shop in Tiburon, CA. Eric's is a great venue to hear high caliper musicians up close an personal. I managed to video a few of your tunes and if you want a copy, let me know.

When I was leaving, I asked Herb about a couple of musicians I had worked with years ago to see if he knew them. He didn't. But as it turns out, Dale had purchased a used banjo years ago and was told that it had once belonged to Herb. The only identifying characteristic of this Gibson Mastertone banjo was that Herb had repaired something on the neck before a show by melting a toothbrush. Dale & Marilyn went to the Troubadour in LA and took the banjo back stage. Sure enough, Herb recognized the repair. I played with Dale & Marilyn for a year and I heard that banjo every night. We both wish Herb had left a few chops onboard. Still it was a fine banjo indeed!

Hey John! Just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful concert last month in Rocky Mount, Va. We were the first in the door so we also had first pick of the seats! This was also my birthday and what a treat, last year also for my birthday saw Chris and Herb in Roanoke, Va and thought it just couldn't get any better but you proved that wrong by being with them that nite! Everyone I spoke with after the concert was just blown away by the three of you, again thanks for sharing your music with all of us. Not to be greedy but I am already praying for a third year in a row to find ya'll within driving distance. BTW, 'specially enjoyed the bluegrass gospel set. No doubt the BEST version of "Rank Stranger" to ever enter my ears.
