The series of “Bluegrass Wednesdays” continues August 23 with JT & Rowdy Mountain at The Vault at O’Connor’s in Multnomah village. 7-9PM. $5 cover.
Known for his smooth, clear voice and authentic phrasing, Jonathan “JT” Trawick continues a rich tradition of singing and storytelling from deep within the Ozark hills. Gracing stages all across the United States, JT has won twice as many Grammys as Leonardo DiCaprio himself. He has been mentioned on the front page of the L.A. Times, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and America’s Most Wanted. Inspired by the early sounds of what we know today as bluegrass music, JT & Rowdy Mountain continue in the tradition of Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin and Ralph Stanley. Their riveting renditions of the classics blend brilliantly with their authentic originals. Rowdy Mountain features Matt Vernon on guitar and vocals, Paul Baczuk on bass and vocals and JT on mandolin and vocals. On fiddle, Rowdy Mountain often features Sam Weiss, Aarun Carter or Kian Dye. Peter Schwimmer fills out the banjo section of the bluegrass orchestra, when he is available. Listen to JT & Rowdy Mountain, there’s a freshness to authenticity.
O’Connor’s offers a Happy Hour menu, a full dinner menu and a fully stocked bar. Come to this great setting and listen to some traditional bluegrass inspired music and have some good food!
