CLAAS IS extremely proud to present John Reischman and The Jaybirds live at the Christina Lake Welcome Centre.
Like the powerful mandolinist and composer at its helm, John Reischman and the Jaybirds fashion a stylish take on bluegrass that seamlessly blends original songs and instrumentals with Appalachian old-time music for a truly unique band sound. Now in their 20th year, with seven acclaimed albums and two Juno nominations, the Jaybirds are simultaneously innovative and unadorned, sophisticated and stripped-down, happily old-fashioned and 21st-century contemporary.
What Critics are saying about their latest album “On That Other Green Shore”
Melding hard-won bluegrass chops, great songwriting, superb ensemble playing, and a tight-knit sound many bands never achieve, John Reischman and the Jaybirds have forged a unique and utterly engaging style that should appeal to fans of first-generation bluegrass to those seeking more modern tones.
On That Other Green Shore is another classic album from John Reischman and the Jaybirds, filled with clever arrangements, class-leading singing and playing, wonderful originals, and fine interpretations of traditional tunes. The mountains that they call home may be along the Pacific Coast instead of Eastern Kentucky, but the music they play rings clear and true from sea to shining sea. – Bluegrass Unlimited
