Jonny Grave & the Tombstones
Jonny Grave is a Bluesman from Washington DC. Growing up in a musical family, Grave was introduced to the sound of American traditional folk music early on. At age fifteen he found himself learning slide guitar techniques from old blues records. The distinc sound that Jonny Grave's music conjures is a resurrection of sorts - The music of R.L. Burnside, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Robert Johnson and Bukka White all find a way into Grave's playing style. His repertoire of sound is made up of new arrangements of older blues and deeply rooted originals.
