Description: Our Daily Bread Bakery & Bistro presents a Rise N Shine Concert featuring American Roots on Saturday, January 20, 2018.

American Roots is an acoustic guitar and vocal harmony duo performing roots and Americana music penned between about 1900 and 1950.

Fred and Jon Benfield took the name “American Roots” because it describes the music they have enjoyed performing together in the five-county area over the last 25 or so years. Their musical influences are many and varied as are their shows which could be characterized as Americana Music: “Carter Family to Gershwin”. A typical performance may include traditional Appalachian ballads, country/piedmont blues, delta blues, very early country, tin-pan alley tunes, western swing, jazz, hot fiddle tunes (on guitar), and “folkgrass” (folk tunes played at bluegrass tempo).
