Finger-picker extraordinaire Jason Dennie will be taking a break from the acclaimed bluegrass band Wayward Roots to do a rare solo show at Crazy Wisdom Bookstore and Tea Room. Dennie is renowned for his folk instrumental work and uses his mastery of finger-style guitar to  delve into jazz, country, blues and rock n’ roll. Although Dennie has made his name as a trusty sideman and teacher, this vetran musician can sure put on a treat of a show when flying solo.
