J.P. Whipple to perform "one-man vagabond orchestra"


What do you get when you combine one musician and 11 instruments?

An act from J.P. Whipple, known as the “one-man vagabond orchestra.”

Whipple will be the performing act at this evening’s Blues & BBQ event at Charles Smith Wines, 35 S. Spokane St.

Known also as “Barefoot John,” he is billed as a post-modern gypsy, touring with his Dobro, accordian, lap steel guitar and more and bringing his eclectic musical background - country, swamp blues, klezmer­ — to his songs.

His performances have been hailed from reviewers. The Salt Lake City Weekly described him as “Tom Waits meets Robert Johnson at the crossroads of the Strip Mall Republic.”

His performance runs 6-9 p.m. For more details call 526-5230.
