The Rev. Jeff Mosier

Scrugg’s-style banjo picker “The Rev” Jeff Mosier, one of the earliest music pioneers who merged bluegrass instruments and traditional tunes with the magnetic energy of JM10-23-11(921kb)rock and roll, founded the jamgrass band Blueground Undergrass (BGUG) in 1998 after years of crafting his banjo skills in various bands, playing everything from bluegrass with his brother Johnny (Good Medicine) to experimental rock (Col. Bruce Hampton and the Aquarium Rescue Unit) to jazz-fusion (The Ear Reverents) and roots-driven Americana (The Mosier Brothers).

Having shared the stage with such legends as Peter Rowan, Vassar Clements, Col. Bruce Hampton, Phish, Leftover Salmon, and Widespread Panic, Mosier has always been a versatile artist who is as comfortable performing on a stage full of musicians as he is playing solo. His superb vocal mastery and unique banjo picking combine to deliver a special experience highlighting his original tunes as well as some familiar traditionals and lesser known covers. Whether traveling through acoustic ballads, thought-provoking and humorous banter, or high-energy bluegrass, each Jeff Mosier show is a musical journey sending the listener on an enjoyable foot-tapping jaunt out on the road and back home again.
