Growing up in southwestern Virginia with no shortage of bluegrass influences to choose from, Jason Ring didn’t see the need to pick just one. Since the age of 5, Ring has been putting his own twist on the blues using the fast, smooth scat of his “mouth trumpet” and flaming fingers on guitar, banjo, mandolin, dobro and bass. And that sets him apart from the rest.

Saturday 7/2. Free, 10:30pm. The Whiskey Jar, 227 W. Main St., Downtown Mall. 202-1549.
