AJ Lee and Blue Summit brings a fresh contemporary approach to bluegrass and Americana, combining virtuoso instrumental work with soaring vocals and sweet harmonies, and taking in elements of western swing, soul, folk, jazz and pop/rock. A powerful singer, talented mandolinist and gifted songwriter, bandleader AJ Lee has been making waves on the acoustic scene for many years, performing in The Tuttles with AJ Lee since she was ten! The band also features flatpicking guitar ace Sully Tuttle. Now in their 20s, AJ and Sully are making a big impact with their equally talented bandmates Jesse Fichman (guitar/vocals), Chad Bowen (upright bass/vocals) and Jan Purat (fiddle).
Soaring harmonies, top notch picking and a reverence for the classic country, bluegrass and folk music of the past all add up to a band who are masters of the genre. With nod to the masters of the past, their sound is modern and thoroughly today.
