Jackson Hole, Wyoming-based One Ton Pig melds the singer-songwriter tradition of artists like Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash with the imaginative genre-bending of jam bands. The result is a fingerprint aesthetic that blurs the lines between folk, jazz, country, bluegrass, gospel and rock’n’roll. Tim Farris, mandolinist in the talented musical group, plays a Weber Yellowstone mandolin, utilizing the clean, earthy, Weber tone along with a variety of pedal effects and his own unique style.
Over the summer Tim and his One Ton Pig bandmates headlined the annual Jackson Hole Live. It was a huge turn out, great supporting fans, and a lot of fun. “Last year, One Ton Pig opened for Old Crow Medicine Show so it was fun to headline this year,” Farris tells us. If you find yourself in Jackson Hole you can find them at their residency at The Wort on Tuesday's.
After One Ton Pig’s exciting summer, they are eager to announce their New Year's Eve show featuring Tony Furtado Thursday, December 31 at Mangy Moose Saloon, Teton Village, Wyoming, US. Tony is widely regarded as one of the world's best instrumentalists.
