Jon Shain & FJ Ventre

FJ Ventre & Jon Shain

Join us to hear North Carolina’s 2019 International Blues Challenge winner Jon Shain in April.  He beat out more than 260 other worldwide contestants earlier this year in Memphis. This will be his second visit to Among Friends and is touring with his long-time friend and bass musician FJ Ventre. The two recently collaborated on a new album release, “Tomorrow Will Be Yesterday Soon.” The musical style is a combination of improvised Piedmont blues with bluegrass, swing, and ragtime. Song samples: “Song for an Old Friend” (with FJ) and “Ordinary Cats” (no, it is not about actual cats!). We know you’ll be enchanted and invite you to bring yourself and someone you like to enjoy this show!

  1. Hi,

    I would love to attend the Ronny Cox show on Saturday, Feb. 9. I’ve attended house concerts in the past, but this would be my first time at your home. I’ve read/heard amazing things, and I can’t imagine a better artist to see in this format than Mr. Cox.
    I see that a donation is suggested, and that snacks can be brought… sounds great! Four tickets is what I need (unless that exceeds your limit). I certainly hope you accept my request. If so, please provide any further information I would need (directions, parking, etc)
    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Thanks,
    Ashley Varner
