Sydni Perry and Cafe Blue present their “progressive acoustic” version of bluegrass on the next edition of Jubilee, recorded live at the third-annual International Newgrass Festival in Bowling Green, KY. The program premieres Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 8/7 p.m. CT on KET and Saturday, Oct. 27 at 11/10 p.m. CT on KET2.

The music of Sydni Perry & Cafe Blue is a mixture of bluegrass, country, jazz, and other genres with an acoustic twist. They affectionately refer to their style as “progressive acoustic,” and their main goal, band members say, is to have fun and hope that fans have as much fun watching them perform as they do performing.

Sydni Perry started singing with her family’s bluegrass band when she was 8 years old. At age 15, Perry was recording with country superstar Patty Loveless on the Grammy-nominated album Sleepless Nights. A year later, she toured with Loveless, singing backup and playing twin fiddles with fiddler extraordinaire Deanie Richardson.

In 2010, Sydni Perry & Cafe Blue landed on the “Coffee, Country, & Cody” show with host Bill Cody on the legendary 650 WSM, radio home of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.

Jubilee is a KET production. Nick Helton is the producer/director and Teresa Day is the executive producer.
