Folklife Masters: John Reischman & The Romeros

A portion of the proceeds go directly to support Northwest Folklife.
Bluegrass mandolinist John Reischman and singer/bassist Trisha Gagnon will join the powerful old-time music duo Jason & Pharis Romero for Northwest Folklifes third Folklife Masters concert. These artists represent the best of West Coast Canadian roots music, and this will be the first time theyve performed together. John Reischman brings a rich knowledge of the bluegrass tradition along with a bold taste for composition. He will be joined for this concert by star vocalist Trisha Gagnon, a wonderful singer and noted songwriter. Also joining him will be The Romeros, masters of old-time country music. Together, they will explore a common ground of murder ballads, gospel shouts, and square dance tunes that has inspired the likes of Bill Monroe, Ralph Stanley and Hank Williams. This Folklife Masters concert will travel the high lonesome path that connects the mountain music of Scots-Irish settlers to the polished sheen of Nashville bluegrass.
