John Reischman & the Jaybirds
CONCERT STARTS AT 3pm
John Reishman is one of the acoustic world's top-ranked mandolin players and composers, renowned for his exquisite tone and impeccable musicianship. His mastery of the instrument is showcased in the powerful bluegrass band John Reischman & the Jaybirds. They have logged years of European and North American tours, five critically acclaimed albums, two Juno nominations and two Canadian Folk Music Award nominations.
John Reischman & the Jaybirds fashion a stylish, elegant take on bluegrass that is innovative and sophisticated, happily old-fashioned, yet fresh and new. A genial blend of story-telling and side-show humor provides the backdrop to their seamless ensemble performance of original songs, instrumentals, and newly arranged traditional material. With Reischman at the helm, the 'birds include Jim Nunally on guitar, Greg Spatz on fiddle, Nick Hornbuckle on banjo, and Trisha Gagnon on bass.
