The Blackberry Bushes Stringband

When you hear a proper bluegrass band, you’d be hard pressed not to say that all the players have some chops—improvisation and fast finger-picking are inherent in the genre. Sometimes, it takes more than practice, though. The players in Northwestern art-folk-bluegrass trio The Blackberry Bushes Stringband have quite the pedigree. Singer and guitar player Jes Raymond grew up with a family of avid bluegrass aficionados but found her love for the genre while studying as a music major at the University of North Carolina. When he was 3, violinist and vocalist Jakob Breitbach played his version of a violin with a paperback book and a wooden spoon; he went on to graduate with a degree in jazz violin from Cornish College of the Arts. And bassist Taylor Kent, when not venturing across the country touring with this fresh string band, is a member of both the Spokane and Yakima symphonies. Serious chops, right?
