Mulebone is a musical partnership comprised of multi-instrumentalist, John Ragusa and roots music specialist, Hugh Pool. The grist for their mill is traditional blues.Together in Mulebone, Hugh and John play slide guitar boogies, 1 chord trance riffs a la Howlin Wolf the uptempo rags of Reverend Gary Davis and country blues of all shapes and colors. Sometimes they play close to the source, almost as if tracing the image, and at other moments, they re-examine the source, float above it, take a new look as one understanding their home from a distant land.
The WNMC Farmhouse Concert Series was started in spring of 2014 with the intention of bringing fans and musicians together in an intimate setting where the focus is on the music. Since it’s inception, folk, jazz, americana, blues, rock, and bluegrass acts have performed house concerts, sharing songs, stories, and their craft with a small audience.
Previous performers include: Joshua Davis; Holly Bowling; The Accidentals; The Crane Wives; The Appleseed Collective; Jon Stickley Trio; Laith Al-Saadi; Rachael and Dominic John Davis; Roger Brown; among others!
