This acoustic jazzy and soulful duo have just released a new music. Entitled Nation of Jubilation, their title track is a song about celebrating the things all humans have in common such as our innate goodness and the beauty of nature. According to Jim Dyar of Enjoy Magazine, this duo’s sound “blends elements of folk, jazz, blues, European and Latin music, all of which translates into a laid-back, tranquil vibe that tends to put people at ease.” Allison will perform on guitar and vocals while Victor will play on saxophone and also sing.
Allison Scull and Victor Martin will perform at the beautiful wine country of Jackson County. Allison and Victor can be seen and heard amidst the sweeping views of Dancin Vineyards on Fridays 5pm to 7pm on June 24, July 8, August 12, September 9, and October 14.
