Modern Acoustic Americana

Jes Raymond & The Blackberry Bushes is an Acoustic Americana  band whose sound falls somewhere between Stevie Nicks, Gillian Welch, and The Infamous Stringdusters.

Nothing Lasts, Nothing Is Finished, Nothing Is Perfect

With understandably mixed feelings, The Blackberry Bushes Stringband would like you to know we are about to play our last two shows with Daniel Ullom and Forrest Marowitz. January 9 at The Tractor is Seattle and January 15 at Mississippi Studios in Portland. 

Being on stage with these guys the last two years has been really special. We are all thankful for the time we had together; We are all thankful for the album we made together.

Touring is hard, and not for everyone. Longterm goals are important. That is what this comes down to. We wish Forrest and Daniel the absolute best. Seattle and Portland - Don’t miss these farewell shows.


We really are celebrating the music. 


Jes, Jakob, and Alex are looking forward to what The Blackberry Bushes have in the works. Forrest and Dan will be missed; we are looking for permanent replacements, but in the meantime we have really great players coming on to fill those roles, and we are excited to be an Official Showcase Artist at the Folk Alliance International Conference in Kansas City this February. Thank you for being a part of this chapter of The Blackberry Bushes Stringband.
