VMF Presents John Jorgenson’s Bluegrass Supergroup in a Drive-In Concert on July 16 Live, socially-distanced and audience-safe at the Ventura Fairgrounds

Ventura, CA  “While we long for the all-clear to sound and live events return to a semblance of what we love, we are committed to presenting live music as conditions allow, so we’re excited about adding a drive-in concert to our credits,” said Executive Director, Susan Scott.  “The drive-in is hugely iconic in America,” she continued, “and what could be more perfect than the John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band (J2B2) and the ‘high lonesome sound’ of American roots music at its finest “

J2B2 is acclaimed for warmth and storytelling along with incomparable songwriting and harmony vocals. Called the “best string players in the world,” the band is led by John Jorgenson, joined by fellow music legends Herb Pedersen, Mark Fain and Patrick Sauber.
