John Reischman & The Jaybirds

August 7 (Tuesday)
7:30pm - 8:45pm

Led by a powerful mandolinist and composer, John Reischman & the Jaybirds fashion a stylish take on bluegrass that seamlessly blends original songs and instrumentals with Appalachian old-time music for a truly unique sound. In their 20th year, with seven acclaimed albums and two Juno Awards nominations, the Jaybirds are simultaneously innovative and unadorned, sophisticated and stripped-down, happily old-fashioned and 21st-century contemporary.

Folk Radio UK on their latest album, On That Other Green Shore, says that it “showcases an accomplished, experienced band at the peak of their powers, with musicianship of the very highest order.” Peghead Nation calls it “one of the most beguiling bluegrass-rooted recordings of 2017."

In addition to John on Mandolin, the Jaybirds feature Trisha Gagnon on vocals and bass, Nick Hornbuckle on banjo, Greg Spatz on fiddle and Patrick Sauber on guitar.
