The Blackberry Bushes
The Blackberry 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 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
Lowdown songsmith : Joe Capoccia on the upright bass.
Bonded by their love of music, mountains, and legwarmers they perform regularly in bars, cafes, galleries, street corners, festivals, and radio stations. They have touched hearts, inspired laughter and instigated dancing with uncommon ease. 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.
