About Jon Shain
Jon Shain is a veteran singer-songwriter who’s been turning heads for years with his words, his fiery acoustic guitar work, and his evolved musical style – combining improvised piedmont blues with bluegrass, swing, and ragtime. Shain’s most recent solo disc, Gettin’ Handy with the Blues: A Tribute to the Legacy of WC Handy, was released in January, 2018. Shain’s newest release is the  gorgeous roots album, Tomorrow Will Be Yesterday Soon,  recorded along with long-time collaborator FJ Ventre.

The last few years have seen Shain headlining listening rooms on the East Coast, in the Midwest, and in Europe, as well as opening shows for John Hiatt, Keb’ Mo’, Little Feat, and others. When Shain is not recording, producing other artists, or performing, he stays busy giving private instruction in Piedmont blues fingerstyle guitar, and teaching group workshops in songwriting and blues guitar.

Get your musical “fix” by playing, dancing, or just having a great time. Musicians from all over the Triangle and beyond show up to play.

Triangle Blues Society (TBS), is a 501(c3) all-volunteer non-profit organization that has been an affiliate member of The Blues Foundation in Memphis since 1996, working together to support, promote, and grow blues music in the greater Raleigh-Durham North Carolina area.
