Mojo and Bob & Blue Ox Music Festival Present

A special night of bluegrass and roots music

November 15, 2019

Doors @ 7pm, Show @ 8pm


Mojo and Bob & Blue Ox Music Festival is proud to present a special night of bluegrass and roots music at the historic NorShor Theatre in Duluth, MN on Friday, November 15th. The lineup includes the hard-driving quintet Pert Near Sandstone, the legendary 14-time Grammy-winning dobro master Jerry Douglas, and rising regional stars Useful Jenkins.

Pert Near Sandstone is currently in the studio with Ryan Young, one of the bands founding members and now fiddler extraordinaire with Trampled by Turtles, finishing their next full-length release due out in 2020. Expect to hear some debuts from that new album as they woodshed the new material ahead of its release. They’ve become leading stewards of roots music in the region, a role that has been magnified after launching the Blue Ox Music Festival which is heading into its 6th year in 2020. Their last appearance at the NorShor was a sold-out show in 2018 with Charlie Parr and Them Coulee Boys so plan on grabbing your tickets sooner rather than later.

Jerry Douglas will perform an intimate solo performance spanning his illustrious 40+ year career and will also accompany Pert Near Sandstone during their performance. In addition to his fourteen solo recordings, Douglas has played on more than 1,600 albums. As a sideman, he has recorded with artists as diverse as Garth Brooks, Ray Charles, Eric Clapton, Phish, Dolly Parton, Paul Simon, and Mumford & Sons, as well as performing on the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack. Since 1998, Douglas has been a member of Alison Krauss and Union Station touring extensively and playing on a series of platinum-selling albums. When not on the road with Alison Krauss and Union Station, Douglas tours in support of his extensive body of work with his bands The Jerry Douglas Band and The Earls of Leicester who won the Grammy for best bluegrass album in 2015.

Useful Jenkins is a contemporary acoustic band with a bluegrass foundation. They use their grass-roots to readily tap into other genres such as folk, funk, rock, and hip hop. Their music generates emotion and sends a message to a wide range of listeners, giving them an eclectic group of followers from all walks of life.

Tommy Emmanuel, CGP with special guest Joe Robinson

“If you like guitar playing, it simply doesn’t get any better than Tommy.” – Jason Isbell

March 25, 2020

Doors @ 7pm, Show @ 8pm



Tommy Emmanuel is rescheduling his concert on Sunday, October 13, in Duluth, MN, at the NorShor Theatre. He is having a health issue that requires medical attention and rest.

Tickets purchased will be honored for the new performance date on March 25.

Tommy would like to thank his fans for the love and understanding, and he is truly sorry for any inconvenience. He looks forward to returning to the road soon.


Tommy Emmanuel has achieved enough musical milestones to satisfy several lifetimes. Or at least they would if he was the kind of artist who was ever satisfied. At the age of six, he was touring Australia with his family band. By 30, he was a rock ‘n’ roll lead guitarist burning up stadiums in Europe. At 44, he became one of five people ever named a Certified Guitar Player by his idol, music icon Chet Atkins.

Tommy has developed a style of solo guitar playing that encompasses the range of a whole band—covering drums, bass, rhythm, and lead guitar and a vocal melody simultaneously. No loop pedals, no overdubs, just one man and ten fingers. While thousands of fans have spent years trying to unpack and imitate Tommy’s technique, for him, it’s just the delivery system. His approach is always song and emotion first, his music the embodiment of his soulful spirit, sense of hope and his love for entertaining.

Today, he plays hundreds of sold-out shows every year. All the while, Tommy has hungered for what’s next. When you’re widely acknowledged as the international master of the solo acoustic guitar, what’s next is Accomplice One, an album of collaborations with some of the finest singers, songwriters and, yes, guitarists alive today.

This event is produced by Jade Presents.
