Ventura Music Festival – Ventura CA

MC11 – John Jorgenson & J2B2

From Executive Director Susan Scott

Dear Friends,

There is a lot to say about John Jorgenson and his Bluegrass supergroup J2B2 featured in this week’s Music Connects – INCLUDING THE FACT YOU CAN SEE AND HEAR THEM LIVE ON JULY 16TH – our first “VMF at the Drive-In” performance!

You already know we’re committed to presenting the best of LIVE music to and for LIVE audiences. For now, the Drive-In seems the best if not only way we can achieve both in a socially-distanced, audience-safe event. It’s still fully-staged, with all the trimmings of a major outdoor concert. The artists are excited and so are we.

As to the artists, Elton John says John Jorgenson is the best guitarist in the world, period (having toured together back in the day). Each J2B2 member has impeccable Bluegrass credentials, sought after by everyone – Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, John Prine, Earl Scruggs, Ricky Skaggs, Allison Krauss, Dolly Parton. 
You can expect “fireworks and amazing playing from some of the best string players in the world” along with gorgeous harmony vocals.

Enjoy MC-11 and J2B2. Take care, be smart, savor something.
