Benezette Blues - Original Tune by Ray - with Jakob's Ferry Stragglers

Howdy folks. Thanks for stopping by!

Currently I am playing Mandolin with the Jakobs Ferry Stragglers. To check out our schedule click here. Couldn't find a better group of folks to play with. It's great being a full time musician.

Hailing from the mountain towns of Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Maryland, the Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers draw freely from old-time, bluegrass, jamgrass, rockabilly, and swing music to create their own brand of high energy Appalachian Bluegrass. Their goal is simple: write good songs, honor the music, have fun, and take it to the road.

I'm also teaching fiddle, mandolin, guitar and banjo at Atkins Music Center in Connelsville, PA and performing solo gigs and the occasional jazz show when time permits.
