Jed Bresette | Out of the Blue Livestream Series

Monday - April, 12 @ 7:00pm

Thank you for joining OUT OF THE BLUE featuring Jed Bresette! Watch live (or later) on our Facebook page.

Jed has been kind enough to donate his portion of the proceeds to a different non-profit each month. This month, he has chosen The Telling Room!

The Telling Room's mission is to empower youth through creative writing and storytelling.  They seek to build confidence, strengthen literacy skills, and provide real audiences for their students. They believe that the power of creative expression can change our communities and prepare our youth for future success.

Hailing from the foothills of Western Maine, Jed Bresette settled in Portland in 2007 at the age of 22 and quickly began dipping his feet into the Maine music scene. From open mic nights to then forming Folk group Slim Pickings, later Bresette joined Old-Timey, Bluegrass band, Tricky Britches. Over the past decade Tricky Britches has serenaded onlookers and passers-by on street corners from New Orleans to Rome, from Berlin to Honolulu, releasing four full-length albums and has sold out venues like One Longfellow Square and Stone Mtn Arts Center.
In the spring of 2019 Bresette formed his own group, Bad Combo. Originally a power trio the band immediately began adding recruits to the roster, plucking some of the finest young talent from Portland's music pool. In full-swing Bad Combo became a 10 piece ensemble playing Bresette's own rock ballads and pop-punk / ska-punk anthems. The band is still producing recordings and continues to release music and videos on streaming platforms while the pandemic rages on.
