WSIU InFocus Segment Archives
Meet Jason Ringenberg of the alt-country rock band Jason and the Scorchers who honed his musical talents while a student at SIU Carbondale in the 1970s and is considered a pioneer in creating Cow Punk, a blend of punk rock and country music. Without Jason and the Scorchers leading the way, bands like Wilco, Uncle Tupelo, and the Drive By Truckers may never have found their voice. Ringenberg continues to front the Scorchers and also performs as a solo folk artist and as children's musical artist Farmer Jason.
