BULL RUN RESTAURANT WITH MOJO RODEO

Paul and Annie’s new project, MOJO RODEO, features veterans of Boston’s music scene and old friends Chris Rival and Marty Richards and newcomers from Berklee College of Music’s Country Blues and Roots programs, including bassist/vocalist Brad Bensko and fiddle virtuoso Kathleen Parks, reimagining blues, bluegrass, honky-tonk country, classic oldies and soul and choice originals. With tight vocal harmonies and a melding of old and new, they transform the street corner duo into a jubilee, making for an unforgettable live show.
"While their guitar, harmonica, and vocals are roiling, muscular, and masterful, their shows are down home- friendly and fun-loving." - Scott Alarik, Boston Globe
