Since 2003, this very popular festival has presented amazing music from the finest artists in bluegrass such as Blue Highway, Balsam Range and Steep Canyon Rangers – and for the first time, this year JAM Live! recorded some of the fantastic performances for this radio show. We also recorded interviews with the musicians which you can hear in full on this website.
These two episodes feature The Abrams Brothers from Kingston, Ontario.
John and James, The Abrams Brothers, are the fourth generation of professional musicians in their family. Barely into their twenties, they have been touring for over a decade. The brothers come from a strong tradition of Bluegrass and Americana music, and have since created a signature sound that brings Country, Rock and Pop all together in one place.
By the time they were 12 and 15, The Abrams Brothers had already performed at Nashville’s iconic Grand Ole Opry. They have since gone on to international success, performing for devoted audiences in Canada, the United States, the UK, Europe and Israel, sharing the stage with artists such as Feist, The Dixie Chicks, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson and Tom Cochrane. The Abrams Brothers are currently working on their fifth studio album with Juno award winning and Grammy nominated producer Gavin Brown, who has produced records for Lady Gaga, the Barenaked Ladies and the Tragically Hip.
