John Reischman & The Jaybirds

Crossmichael Memorial Hall, Castle Douglas, DG7 3AY
Sat 4th May 2019 7:30PM
Wee Book House & CatStrand present the first of a series of events in Cross Michael.
A bar will be provided at the hall - proceeds going towards the Crossmichael Gala.

Grammy award winning 'Mando monster' John Reischman is one of the premier mandolinists of his generation. He’s a master instrumentalist capable of swinging between re-inventions of traditional old-time tunes, deconstructions from the bluegrass repertoire, and compelling original tunes, many of which have become standards. He’s also a powerful bandleader, touring his band the Jaybirds all over Canada and the United States.

The Jaybirds put their own particular stamp on bluegrass, old time and acoustic roots music, with a satisfying blend of traditional and modern styles, and they also give the impression that they really enjoy playing together. There’s plenty here to please both bluegrass traditionalists and lovers of modern American folk music, especially for those with an appreciation of great harmony singing as well as masterful instrumental playing.

Guest fiddler Annie Staninec joins the four piece band.
