The Blackberry Bushes Stringband is a high energy, soulful, Americana quartet. The “Bushes” are a band of songwriters with a strong Bluegrass and old-time bend. They have remained loyal to their Ozark, Appalachian, and Mississippi River roots and added just a twist of West coast indie-rock. Second place winners of the 2009 Telluride Bluegrass Band Competition, The Blackberry Bushes Stringband formed in Olympia, WA in 2004. They tour nationally, and feature quick pickin’ banjo songstress Kendl Winter, singer-songwriter-strummer-stomper Jes Raymond on guitar, rattlesnake fiddler Jakob Breitbach and lowdown songsmith Joe Capoccia on the upright bass. They are often noted for their sweet harmonies, darling lyrics, and near virtuosic musicianship. Their songs are instant classics, and their performances are guaranteed to turn heads and move an audience.
