BIG JON SHORT Fleur De Lis Back to 2015 Lineup
Big John Short  

Armed with foot percussion, a National Reso-phonic Guitar and Lowebow cigar-box hillharp, Big Jon Short’s high energy One-Man Band Country Blues performances bring a foot-stomping show that taps into the heart of the songs, regional styles, and folklore of the Blues and its importance to American music.

Based in the Northeast US, Big Jon Short travels and performs between 150-200 shows per year at venues and festivals from Massachusetts to Mississippi. 

With performing experience in fifteen states, and five countries over the last ten years he has been able to perform at some of the best known venues for Blues music and for more than two years he held a residency at the famed Terra Blues in NYC – all while continuing his work as a public school teacher, running Blues in Schools programs and workshops. In 2010 he was a Semi-finalist at the International Blues Challenge and later was awarded the Worcester Cultural Commission Artist Fellowship for his work as a Blues performer and educator. He is currently supporting his most recent live recording of country blues “Live at The Stomping Ground.
