Rhythm on the Rails May 31, 2024: Jargon and Josh Williams

May 31st @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Northwest Tennessee-based bluegrass band Jargon was originally formed in 2005. The group performs regularly at festivals, opry shows, county fairs and various benefit and other concerts in Tennessee and Kentucky. Featuring some award-winning musicians and original music, Jargon is sometimes described as having a different bluegrass style, but you can always expect to hear traditional, gospel and even a twist here and there at a Jargon show.

Josh Williams

The story of Josh Williams is the story of bluegrass. Born and raised in Benton, a Kentucky town so small he locates it as “outside Paducah,” Williams was brought up on bluegrass and vintage country. His grandmother, Mary Neale Williams, showed him some ukulele chords when he was five-years-old and by nine, he was playing banjo with local bluegrass bands. Just shy of his 10th birthday, he attended the 1990 IBMA Awards show in Owensboro and his life’s path was set. Check out this video of Josh Williams performing The Prodigal Son.
