Jon Camp + Scott Verrastro / Dann Pell / Nathan McLaughlin
Jon Camp is a fingerstyle guitarist and composer from the Washington, DC region. Jon blends twang, drone, and melody into a cohesive whole that is exploratory without forsaking the hook. Of Jon’s recent self-titled release on Centripetal Force, Andy French of Raven Sings the Blues said, “From fingerpicked folk to broken dawn blues, glycerine contemplation, bluegrass breezes and non-trad tributaries, the album doesn’t settle. With so many muses, Jon keeps things from swerving between impulses, finding a common beam between the hues in his wheel of colors.” For Jon’s set, he’ll perform in a duo setting with drummer Scott Verrastro (Kohoutek, Jeffrey Alexander & the Heavy Lidders).
Dann Pell is a guitarist, vocalist and songwriter from Chester County, PA. His music embraces folk traditions; country-blues, jazz, chants/hymns/spirituals, and incorporates unique expansive rhythmic devices.
Nathan McLaughlin lives and works in Hudson, NY. His focus is on the intersection of acoustic and electronic instruments, the human being and going to the center.
