Jon Shain (2019 International Blues Challenge Winner) and FJ Ventre bring their excellent acoustic blues duo to The Robin! Opening up the night is Deacon Earl, hometown hero and multi-instrumentalist!

Jon Shain is a veteran singer-songwriter who's been  turning heads for years with his words, his fiery acoustic guitar work,  and his evolved musical style - combining improvised piedmont blues with  bluegrass, swing, and ragtime. Shain’s latest solo disc, Gettin' Handy with the Blues - a Tribute to the Legacy of WC Handy, was released in January, 2018. Shain's newest release is Tomorrow Will Be Yesterday Soon, with long-time collaborator FJ Ventre.
