Our Host:





Diamond Blue’s songs have been showcased at venues across the tri-state area including Border’s Books and Music, Starbuck’s, The Fitton Center, Summerfair, and Eden Song, as well as other book stores, coffee shops, local festivals, and cable access programs.  Each member contributes to Diamond Blue as singer, songwriter, and musician, and their diverse backgrounds reflect each individual member’s style resulting in a contemporary blend of rock, country, folk and blues – they call it ‘eclectric’.


Jude – Jude Jones performs with several local orchestras including the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra, the Clermont Philharmonic, and Lebanon and Hamilton/Fairfield Symphonies.  Celtic music has also become an inviting genre, and she performs regularly with award-winning harpist Nancy Clark and her percussionist/vocalist husband Frank.  Performing venues have included the Newport Irish Fest, as well as Celtic Festivals at Coney Island and Dublin, Ohio.  Jude subs regularly on piano as a liturgical musician in the Greater Cincinnati area.  Some of her original music has been used by Mad Cap Productions.  Jude plays fiddle and acoustic guitar, and sings lead vocals and backup harmony.
