Jason Ringenberg - Absolutely Sweet Marie
Today, November 22, is the birthday of Jason Ringenberg, “The Original Roots Punk Barnstormer”. Jason took the Blue Plate stage by (barn) storm and treated the appreciative audience to some vintage Jason and The Scorchers tunes, including this cover of Bob Dylan’s “Absolutely Sweet Marie”. Jason had a dream of “Making a band that could kick American roots music into the modern age!”, and throughout the 1980’s and 90’s Jason and The Scorchers became known as one of the most exciting live bands in music. Their instinctive ability to combine traditional country music & high energy punk rock still sets the standard. In 2008 they were awarded the Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance, and they have an exhibit in the Country Music Hall of Fame. At the end of the video, Jason shares a story about the first time The Scorchers played in Knoxville in 1982. pink mohawks and red necks figure prominently) Learn lots more about Jason Ringenberg and his Emmy Award winning alter ego Farmer Jason on his website at: http://www.farmerjason.com/jasonringe....
