Mission Blue delivers straight-ahead bluegrass featuring our special brand of family harmony singing. A collaboration of Dana and Avram (AJ) Frankel, Mission Blue has been performing since 2017. A deep well of traditional bluegrass to informs Mission Blue’s sets – one can expect songs from the The Stanley Brothers, Larry Sparks, Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, Mac Martin and Red Allen, as well as bluegrass innovators such as J.D. Crowe and The New South, Hot Rize, Southern Blend and The Johnson Mountain Boys. In addition, Mission Blue salts each set with reinterpretations of older folk tunes and ballads - and original material.
We perform at venues and festivals all over CA and Southern OR and are available for private events.
