Jason McInnes

Jason McInnes

Jason McInnes uses his guitar and banjo to support his reinterpretation of folk traditions. His songs and stories are powerful, yet tender; uniquely his, yet as old as time. He has been a faculty member at the nationally recognized Old Town School of Folk Music since 2003, where he has created several programs to support mulit-generational music-making.  Jason founded the Young Stracke All-Stars in 2008, which consists of young musicians ages 9 to 13.  The group is named after children’s music and education pioneer, Win Stracke.  Jason founded the group to provide a link between master musicians of the past and young audiences of today.
