Jon Ward Beyle
Listen to John Ward Beyle perform at the Chapel Hill Nine Marker.
An eighth-generation native of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Jon Ward Beyle has been musically inspired by his homeland his entire life. To the west he heard earthy, folk Mountain music and to the east he heard Carolina beach music. Nestled in the middle, just outside of the University town, Beyle came of age in this creative, down-home, intellectual hotbed. First taking up guitar and drums, while also dabbling in piano, Beyle eventually found his way to the banjo, the instrument that led him to a world of old-time, folk, bluegrass, and Americana music.
Listen to Stichomythia at Peace and Justice Plaza.
