JD Hobson will play an acoustic show from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday at Vashon’s Havurat Ee Shalom.

For years, Hobson has played as a solo artist using multiple guitars in multiple tunings with a stomp box to hold down his foot-tapping beat. From sweet slide to intricate finger picking, he’s proven his skill and versatility in the trenches.

Nominated for best solo/duo blues act by the Washington Blues society’s “Best of the Blues” awards, Hobson was also the South Sound Blues Association’s Back to Beale Street Competition solo/duo winner in both 2010 and 2011.

Tickets are $15 and available at brownpapertickets.com or at the door.
