Jason Ring: vocals, guitar, resonator guitar, mandolin, banjo, bass and mouth flugel
Of his more recent awards, as of Spring 2007, are his three winnings at the 2006 Virginia Bluegrass Music State Championships. Jason was awarded third place in the guitar, the banjo, and the dobro competitions.
The south has too many musical traditions to recall...but now there is one entertainer who embodies them all.
From his birth in Galax, Virginia in the shadow of the world-famous Galax Fiddler's Convention to his love and mastery of the Delta Blues and everything in between, Jason Ring is one that impresses.
His music is a 25 year stew still in the brew. At the age of 5, by the instruction of his family, Jason started playing bluegrass and piedmont blues. Over time jazz, ragtime, and gypsy swing made it's way through his music. While skillfully being able to play almost any stringed instrument including guitar, banjo, mandolin, dobro and bass - he's also savvy enough to throw down on a smooth skat including his impressive "mouth trumpet." All this skill along with those "flaming fingers" enable Jason's style to be unmatched.
Now this multi-faceted artist has recorded his latest CD, Patchwork, which powerfully displays not only his skills as a musician but also demonstrates his passionate energy and love of traditional roots music with a spin.
