Jake Blount and Libby Weitnauer music are embarking on a tour of Australia and New Zealand to share the fiddle and banjo music of Black and Native American communities and explore their mutual fascination with rhythm and resonance.

Jake Blount is a fiddler, banjo player and scholar based in Ithaca, New York. He has performed and recorded with acclaimed fiddler Tatiana Hargreaves and award-winning old-time string band The Moose Whisperers, in addition to having served as a guest lecturer at numerous museums and universities. In 2018, he opened a series of shows for GRAMMY-winner and MacArthur “Genius Grant” recipient Rhiannon Giddens. He centers and venerates his racial and ethnic heritage through his approach to music and its history.

Fiddler and singer Libby Weitnauer has degrees in classical violin performance from DePaul University and New York University, but finds her voice in the traditional music of Appalachia. She has performed in a wide range of venues and concert halls, most recently the Smithsonian National Museum of American History after a summer of research and music-making under the supervision of Grammy Award winner Dom Flemons.
