Some of New Jersey’s leading roots, folk and Americana acts will appear Sunday, Oct. 1, for a night of music at a benefit show entitled Jay’s Jersey Jams, Vol. 2.
Among those who have agreed to perform that night are: The Shockenaw Mountain Boys featuring members of Railroad Earth; Kinderhook (pictured), banjo ace Tony Trischka; Barry Mitterhoff, formerly of Hot Tuna; and special guest Lisa Bouchelle. Ticket proceeds to benefit NJArts.net.
“Not only will Oct 1 be a day of great music, but it’s for a great cause!” says Tim Carbone of the Shockenaw Mountain Boys, which features three members of Railroad Earth – a renowned “jamgrass” band that performs nationally before sold-out crowds.
Tickets are $20 (plus fee) and are available through Ticketfly.com. The show will take place at The Crossroads in Garwood, which is easily accessible from Garden State Parkway Exit 137.
Trischka, who was inducted into the American Banjo Museum Hall of Fame on Sept. 8 in Oklahoma City, has jammed over the years with Mitterhoff and Carbone, John Skehan and Andy Goessling of Railroad Earth. Carbone, Skehan and Goessling all hail from Northwest Jersey.
“I am looking forward to playing with my friends and for my fans in support of the arts in New Jersey on Oct. 1,” says Jerry Kopychuck, lead singer for Kinderhook and a resident of Mansfield Township.
