Award-winning banjoist, fiddler, singer and ethnomusicologist Jake Blount will be performing at Common Fence Music in Portsmouth, RI Saturday, October 16th at 8PM. Click here for tickets to the show.

Providence resident Blount has been very busy lately, winning the prestigious Steve Martin Banjo Prize last year and playing Newport’s “Folk On” in 2021. He’s back on tour after a Covid hiatus and is playing solo dates and festivals including a show at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. To celebrate, we’re re-publishing an interview we conducted with Blount last year.

Republished from June 2020: There’s an exciting new voice on the local music scene, an artist who has already achieved international critical acclaim. Recent Providence transplant Jake Blount is a Roots/Americana musician who emerged nationally about three years ago.
