Guitarist Jake Eddy joins us this week for a lively conversation about bluegrass, guitars, social media, and more.
Jake was one of the big discoveries for many attending the 2022 Fretboard Summit at Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk. During this week’s talk, we discuss his bluegrass roots in West Virginia (including his first gigs as a banjo player alongside his grandfather), his recent performances with Andy Statman, why he hates being considered an internet guitarist, and why he recently signed on as a Yamaha artist. It’s a great chat.
SEATTLE: The Fretboard Journal is presenting Jake Eddy at Seattle’s Rabbit Box Theater in Pike Place Market this Saturday, January 7 at 6 p.m. If you’re near Seattle, come see what all the fuss is about. Admission is free, but give a donation to Jake!
