Jason Scaggs is a man with many instruments and many musical influences. If you listen closely you can hear his Appalachian boyhood in Roanoke, Virginia, some raucous Boulder, Colorado flavor and a swirl of Vermont inspiration for good measure. Taking pride in his thoughtful lyrics and unique melodies, Jason's songs are mesmerizing, drawing you into his vision. His songwriting ranges from Folk to Bluegrass to Alt Rock. Smooth transitions from banjo, to guitar, to baritone guitar make for an exciting ride and when coupled with his smooth vocals, his performance will leave you wanting to hear more.
 
Scaggs is probably most well known for his work in the regionally touring band Jatoba (www.jatobamusic.net). There he was 1/3 of a foot-stomping, rowdy and dizzying non-traditional bluegrass trio. He is currently focusing on his duo “The Big Empty” (https://www.facebook.com/bigemptymusic/) with Jeff Richardson, also formerly of Jatoba. Jason is also the driving force behind a new musical movement based in Brattleboro called 5 Mics (https://www.facebook.com/FiveMicsVT/). A listening room style event taking place every 4-5 weeks through fall,winter & spring, five musicians take the stage and in a round robin format play selected songs to the audiences rapt attention. The musicians change each time and the project is gaining a following locally thanks to the palpable rawness and vulnerability seldom shared between artist and audience.
