The Blackberry Bushes Stringband tours behind its new three-song EP "Both Feet In," which is available for download on Bandcamp. The band will play at 7 p.m. Sunday, April 21, at The Playwright Public House, 258 A St., Ashland.

The members, guitarist Jes Raymond, fiddler Jakob Breitbach and upright bassist Taylor Kent, a recent addition, apply their classical music educations to roots genres, creating what Raymond calls alt-folk and progressive bluegrass.

In addition to the new EP and a forthcoming live album, The Blackberry Bushes released "Little Bit of Grace" in 2010 and "At the Break" in 2012.

The cover to the show at The Playwright is $5. Call 541-488-9128 or see for more information.
