J.J. Grey on Woodsongs
Posted on: Wednesday, Feb 25, 2009
I have been a fan of JJ Grey for quite a while ever since Chuck Nevitt tipped me off to the original Cheap Ass Funk of Mofro. Grey has a great voice and all the Mofro albums are worth a listen. He has recently done a session for the Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour that is available as audio or video.

JJ Grey is the show with The Duhks
JJ GREY was born and raised just outside of Jacksonville, Florida. Grey comes from a long tradition of Southern musical storytellers. Like the best of the great Southern writers, he fills his songs with details that are at once vivid and personal, political and universal. JJ and his band Mofro’s brand of front porch soul has steadily built an intensely loyal following since their debut CD in 2001. JJ’s new album Orange Blossoms, released on Alligator Records, takes another giant step forward. JJ will be performing solo acoustic on WoodSongs.
THE DUHKS return the WoodSongs stage to perform songs from their new CD Fast Paced World released on Sugar Hill Records. Based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, the band has been hailed by The New York Times as one of the artists at the forefront of the neo-folk movement. The band’s spot-on fusion of traditional bluegrass, folk rock, Afro-Cuban jazz and soul have earned them a Grammy Award nomination in the Best Country Vocal Performance category as well as a Juno award in their native Canada. Environmental issues are a passion for the band, inspiring them to launch The Duhks Sustainability Project in October 2007.
