John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band, is an all-star bluegrass group featuring four legendary, award-winning musicians: John Jorgenson on acoustic guitar, mandolin and vocals; Herb Pedersen on banjo, acoustic guitar and vocals; Mark Fain on bass; and Patrick Sauber on acoustic guitar and vocals. 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.
With band members range in age from 15 to 20 years of age, Cane Mill Road rocks the traditional bluegrass standards they grew up on, and tackles progressive-grass interpretations of Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Gordon Lightfoot, and more. The open the show. Audiences love Cane Mill Road’s high-energy performances, easy going rapport both on and off stage, and the eclectic mix of originals and standards in the show. Honoring the past, the band looks to the future with a blended set of traditional and progressive music that walks the lines between bluegrass, old-time, Americana, and folk.
