JOHN REISCHMAN & THE JAYBIRDS
 
Saturday, January 31 8:00pm
Harrison Memorial Hall
Tickets: $22.00
 
“Aces in writing, instrumental and vocal departments...a true collaborative effort from this West Coast amalgamation of Canadian and American bluegrass musicians, and worthy of repeated listenings and then some.”
- The Edmonton Journal
 
 
John Reischman and the Jaybirds offer a stylish, elegant take on bluegrass that is at once innovative and unadorned, sophisticated and stripped-down, happily old-fashioned yet unselfconsciously new.  Numerous European and North American tours, five critically acclaimed albums, two Juno nominations and two Canadian Folk Music Award nominations attest to their firmly established role as a Canadian bluegrass institution.
 
While rooted in tradition, a sense of creativity guides their refreshing excursions in acoustic roots music.  Their bluegrass harmonies are spot-on and each instrumental break crackles with energy. Their live shows feature their studied performance of original songs, instrumentals and newly arranged traditional material mixed with the fun of watching the Jaybirds skillfully weave around one centre microphone, engaging in genial and often humorous MC work.  If you're a fan of acoustic music - it doesn't get much better than this.
