89.3 WNUR Welcomes David Grisman Folk Jazz Trio with The Deadly Gentleman About David Grisman Folk Jazz Trio David Grisman Folk Jazz Trio Website For nearly half a century, mandolinist / composer, David Grisman has been a guiding force in the evolving world of acoustic music. From clubs, colleges and festivals to Carnegie Hall? his performances with his various groups and collaborations with other virtuoso musicians have always brought excitement and joy to audiences of all ages. David Grisman first met and played with guitarist/vocalist extraordinaire Jim Hurst a decade ago at the "Bluegrass at the Beach" camp in Oregon. In 2011, David attended one of Jim's remarkable solo performances in Sonoma County and was inspired to form this trio to explore some of their common roots in folk, country and jazz. Jim Hurst?s unique picking style and mastery of bluegrass guitar wows audiences and is revered by both novice guitar players and his musical peers. His eclectic career has made him a remarkable performer, an experienced instructor and a highly sought after session musician. His affability and gregariousness make him one of the most approachable musicians of his caliber. David and Jim will be joined by Sam Grisman on upright bass. Sam has been a full-time member of the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience since 2005.
