King Street Bluegrass at Jammin Java

Although based in DC, King Street Bluegrass’ members have rural, farm and coal miner family roots from the mountains of West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Southern Virginia. In 2014 lead singer and ace banjoist Robert Swain had a devastating stroke, which took away his speech, his right side, and nearly his life. The band wouldn't quit, from creating conga lines in ICU, to having him sing baritone at shows immediately upon his hospital release. His recovery has been remarkable. Their latest album celebrates his journey and the bands recovery.

Music starts at 7:30 at Jammin Java with Split String Soup. Tickets are $15 at the door or $10 advance on Eventbrite.
