Performance Information

D.C.’s leading bluesman Jonny Grave performs a live studio set for Full Service Radio with his quartet. Grave has performed at hundreds of venues all over the world, from the red dirt floor of Gip’s Juke Joint in Alabama to the red carpet of the Kennedy Center. Grave’s work as a guitarist, singer, songwriter, and bandleader is influenced by his early exposure to American traditional folk music and learning slide guitar techniques from old blues records.
