Join Holly and Jon for a night of soulful blues at the Silverton Gallery.

Join Holly and Jon for ‘1929’

Holly and Jon are a duo who play a blend of music from swampy, southern blues, swing with elements of jazz, folk and more.

Local musicians Holly and Jon from Winlaw/Lemon Creek bring expert guitar and superb vocals to traditional and original blues compositions. The duo have opened for the legendary Leon Russell and blues sensation Jimmy Bowskill. They’ve also rocked the house at Silverton’s Winter Blues Boogie.

Holly performed at the Lionel Hampton International Jazz Festival and opened for jazz/blues virtuoso Carlos Del Junco. She’s been called one of the most promising young female emerging blues singers on the scene today.

Jon has performed with blues icons Sonny Rhodes and Rita Chiarelli.

Holly and Jon are actually a daughter and father duo who play a blend of music from swampy, southern blues, swing with elements of jazz, folk and more.

Their current CD release “1929” is inspired by the acoustic blues of the Deep South. The CD’s cover track “Back to1929” offers a small glance at the history of the blues, taking the listener through field hollers, to smoky roadhouses and finally to see the Queen of the blues, Bessie Smith.

Their soulful vocals, rocking guitar and solid bass playing provide a power full combination for an inspirational night of music you won’t want to miss.

Six bucks will get you a night of great music. Doors open at 7:30 at the Silverton Gallery on Nov. 10, and the show starts at 8:00 p.m.
