The Woods Hole Film Festival presents the world premiere of The John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band, featuring four legendary musicians — John Jorgenson (guitar and mandolin), Herb Pederson (banjo), Jon Randall (guitar), and Mark Fain (bass).  Jorgenson and Pederson are founders (with Chris Hillman) of the formative country rock band “Desert Rose.”

ABOUT THE BAND

After working as a freelance musician in Southern California, Jorgenson met Chris Hillman and formed the Desert Rose Band.  In 1990, he founded the Hellecasters and toured with Elton John’s band for six years.  Artists ranging from Barbra Streisand to Bonnie Raitt to Earl Scruggs have sought out Jorgenson’s guitar work.  Jorgenson portrayed Django Reinhardt in the feature film, “Head in the Clouds.”  In 2008, Jorgenson won a Grammy for Best Country Instrumental, with Brad Paisley and was nominated for Best Bluegrass Album with Earl Scruggs.

Herb Pederson was a member of the legendary bluegrass band, The Dillards, as well as the bluegrass supergroup, Old and In the Way.  A sought after singer and musician, he has worked with music legends such as Chris Hillman, Earl Scruggs, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt and many others.  John Randall first gained recognition as guitarist for Emmy Lou Harris’ Band, The Nash Ramblers.  He was written songs for Brad Paisley, Alison Kraus and Travis Tritt, and toured with Earl Scruggs and Sam Bush.  Mark Fain toured and recorded as a bass player for Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder for 13 years.  He has toured with the Dixie Chicks, Alan Jackson, Travis Trtt and Dolly Parton, among others.

The four are uniting around their strong love of bluegrass music and will include both traditional and progressive takes on the style.
