Widely regarded as one of the most innovative and genre-bending artists of his craft, Barnes' musical interests are both varied and adventurous, and he incorporates that versatility into a progressive approach to an instrument that is musically polarizing and steeped in tradition.
Although he demonstrates an appreciation for the history of the bluegrass, country, and folk music from which the banjo's reputation was born, his inventive take is what truly separates him from his contemporaries¬Â¦using the banjo as his ¬Ëœweapon of choice' to play non-traditional music like rock, fusion, and jazz with electronic percussion and loop elements. Tonight he is joined by PDX's beloved acoustic soul/newgrass pioneers, Fruition.
