Tonight promises to be one of the best bluegrass shows we’ve ever hosted. Jake Eddy plays guitar in Becky Buller’s band and while they’re on a little break, he’s put together his own band of excellent musicians, including fiddler John Duncan, Graham Brewer on mandolin, and Jake’s brother, Carter Eddy, on bass.
Jake Eddy, at 21, is one of the hottest bluegrass guitarists in the country. From Parkersburg, West Virginia, he plays all the bluegrass instruments but specializes in flat-pick and gypsy-jazz style guitar. In 2014, while still in middle school, he won $10,000 in a jingle competition for the Band-Aid company and was subsequently asked to join Melvin Goins‘ Windy Mountain Boys.
While a student at Ohio University, Eddy fronted two bands, the Jake Eddy Gypsy Jazz Trio and the Eddy/Meyer Trio.
He joined the Becky Buller Band earlier this year, and one of their last shows before this little break was at the Grand Ole Opry in September. He also released his first solo project this year, featuring such outstanding players as Rob Ickes and Kenny Smith.
On mandolin tonight is Graham Brewer, from Wilmington, where he also plays with the bluegrass duo the Brewer Brothers.
Carter and Jake Eddy grew up in a musical family, with both parents performing regularly at local bluegrass jams and their grandfather joined Melvin Goins’ band with young Jake.
We’re still at 50% capacity, so purchasing advance seats whether reserved or general admission for this show is a good idea. You and your party will be seated apart from others. We also ask that unvaccinated patrons wear masks when not in their seats.
