pj-2Singing vibrant duets, writing deadly songs, playing handmade banjos and loving old acoustic guitars, Pharis & Jason Romero will be returning to Williams, performing a rare hometown concert on Wednesday, September 23, 2015.

The last performance in Williams was held in a rustic backyard concert in 2012, their powerful vocals, acoustic music and vintage roots captivated locals.

Born and raised in Colusa, Jason Romero learned fine woodworking skills while living in Arcata, where he soon became a world-renowned banjo, maker. Jason later relocated to British Columbia and married his wife Pharis in 2007.

The duo performs original songs and some beautiful gems from the 1920’s, 30’s, and 40’s – with vintage Martin and Gibson guitars and their hand-crafted banjos.

Jason and Pharis now reside in Pharis’ hometown of Horsefly, BC. Despite living off the beaten path, they’ve been on-the-go the past several years, releasing three albums in five years, touring the United Kingdom, across Canada and the United States. The Duo has appeared several times on “A Prairie Home Companion”, garnering praise from critics and peers everywhere they go.
