Jeff Austin is an integral part of the worldwide jam and contemporary bluegrass community -- the staple mandolin player is a founding member of Yonder Mountain String Band, and over the years, he has played with the likes of Keller Williams and members of String Cheese Incident and North Mississippi Allstars.
Through his expert playing, Austin has single-handedly transformed the smallish stringed instrument into a powerful source of melody and rhythm, prominent in all of the work he creates. Plus, Jeff Austin might be the only man who can head bang while playing the mandolin and look awesome doing it. This show is all ages, and tickets are $20. Doors open at 8:30 p.m., bands start at 9 p.m.
