Concert: Rootless / Jagtime Millionaire / Jon Camp


Friday August 2 * 8pm * $10 * TICKETS

Rootless is New York-based musician Jeremy Hurewitz. Described as “revelatory, immersive music,” by critic Nigel Spencer, Rootless combines solo-acoustic guitar with electronics to create expansive sonic landscapes. His fifth album, "Live at Rhizome," was released in February by Hypnic Jerk out of Melbourne, Australia. Previous releases have been on Aural Canyon, Cabin Floor Esoterica, Experimedia and Otherwordly Mystics. Collaborators have included Mark Mcguire, Brendan Anderegg, Ben Vida, Kevin Shea, Daniel Carter, Mukqs and Steven Hauschildt. Rootless radio play has included WFMU's "Avant Ghetto" show and Dublab's "Contact Wave."

Jagtime Millionaire is Raymond Morin, a Connecticut-born guitarist, luthier and songwriter. Currently living and working in Pittsburgh PA, Morin developed his guitar playing through a deep appreciation of British and American fingerpicking folk styles. He is a member of the long-running Pittsburgh guitar duo Pairdown, and also the co-founder of Pleinview Guitars, a line of made-to-order custom steel-string guitars. In the last couple of years, Morin has immersed himself in the music of Scott Joplin and set about learning some of the all-time classic rags, assisted greatly by the meticulous arrangements of legends like Ton Van Bergeyk, David Laibman, Stefan Grossman, and more. Using his jumbo Kevin Kopp acoustic guitar and his thumb pick, Morin presents this material with dynamics and humor, truly breathing new life into these timeless compositions.

Jon Camp is a fingerstyle guitarist and composer from the DC region. On "Headwinds & Tailwinds," Jon builds off the structure of American Primitive Guitar and applies it to an electric full-band setting, encompassing psychedelia, country, drone, and more. For this show at Rhizome, Jon will be playing with long-time collaborator Nick Arrivo on bass, Jamie Linder (Crooks & Crows) on pedal steel and keys, and Dave Jones (The Caribbean) on guitar and electric piano.
