Jason Ringenberg, formerly of Jason and the Scorchers is no stranger to Ireland. Jason is the original roots punk barnstomper, the Scorchers “singlehandedly rewrote the history of rock n roll in the South” -Rolling Stone.
In 2008 they were awarded the Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance. There is an exhibit of them in the Country Music Hall of Fame. But Ringenberg’s story does not stop there. In 1999 the “Godfather of Americana” (Mojo) decided to go solo. He has released five solo cds where his songwriting has been lauded by everyone from the BBC to USA TODAY. Touring the world relentlessly, The Times (UK) called him “one of the most exciting performers of his generation”. So don’t go to his shows expecting to see a sensitive singer-songwriter sitting on a stool. With his acoustic guitar and fearless charisma he will rock the house.
