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. Jon won the 2019 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, out of a worldwide field of more than 260 competitors. Jon and FJ Ventre began playing music together in 1982 when they met in high school. In addition to performing as a sought after sideman, FJ spends his time behind the mixing board, engineering at his own studio.
