Before their concert with Yarn (who will be stopping by earlier in the show) at the Southern in Charlottesville the first night of November, James Justin & Co will first stop by Folk & Beyond. We might even get them to play a few cuts off their latest album, Places.
James Justin Burke knows a few things about life on the road. From the Rockies to the Big Apple, he and his band, James Justin & Company, have stared eye-to-eye with a mountain lion in Old New Mexico, kissed the sky at Wolf Creek Pass in southern Colorado, and picked late into the evening in Metal Cities across the country.
Based in Richmond, Virginia, with their toes firmly in the sands of Folly Beach, SC, James Justin & Co have built their base of spirited fans through heavy touring, high harmonies, and impeccable bluegrass chops. With one foot in traditional roots music and the other on a reverb pedal, Stratocaster in hand, it’s no wonder that JJ&Co have attracted notable influences from Sam Bush to Band of Horses’ Ben Bridwell to collaborate with on stage and in the studio.
