  Mojo and Bob & Blue Ox Music Festival are excited to present a special night of bluegrass and roots music at the NorShor Theatre in Duluth, MN on Friday, November 15th. You're not going to want to miss this one.

Pert Near Sandstone will be fiddling, picking and stomping throughout the night. They sold out the last time they played NorShor in 2018 with Charlie Parr.

Jerry Douglas, 13-time Grammy winner and one of the world's greatest dobro players, will take the stage solo but is rumored to join Pert Near Sandstone during their performance.

This Minnesota four-piece plays a virtuosic, bluegrass-inspired mix on fiddle, guitar, bass, and drums, bringing in classical, Celtic, R & B, and bebop influences. This year they plan to release their third album, their first in seven years. They headlined this 2019's Cabin Fever Festival, that happened March 29-March 31 at the Radisson Hotel in Duluth. We got a preview when they joined us in the studio that March 29.

 jam session

noun 1. a meeting of a group of musicians to play for their own enjoyment. 2. an impromptu performance or special performance by  musicians who do not regularly play together.  You could add to that citation from the Random House Dictionary:  a meeting of musicians and aspiring musicians of all ages, skill levels and walks of life, several times a week at an iconic Duluth eatery.

The nontraditional bluegrass band from the Twin Cities, Ginstrings, joined us October 1, 2015. They played the same night at the Red Herring Lounge in Duluth.
