John Reischman & The Jaybirds CD Release Concert
Calling all fans of bluegrass, traditional and original acoustic music!  

John Reischman & The Jaybirds are playing a concert to celebrate the release of On That Other Green Shore, their seventh album. For this recording theyve chosen material to showcase the signature Jaybirds blend of old-time and bluegrass music, this time with an added emphasis on the bluesier side of bluegrass and a surprise foray into the Beatles songbook, for good measure.

The Jaybirds feature some of the finest acoustic musicians on the road west, led by world-renowned mandolinist John Reischman (mandolin and vocals). John began his career in the San Francisco Bay area in the early '80s with the Good Ol' Persons bluegrass band and the legendary instrumental new acoustic quartet the Tony Rice Unit. John moved to Vancouver in the early '90s and formed the Jaybirds, a two-time Juno-nominated band delivering their own trademark blend of original songs and instrumentals, reimagined tunes from the old-time vaults, and bluegrass power. They are simultaneously modern, vintage and unique.

Newest member Patrick Sauber (guitar and vocals), a soaring harmony singer and firecracker lead guitarist, hails from the Los Angeles area, and is one the west coast's most sought-after sidemen. Chilliwack-based Trisha Gagnon (bass and vocals) is portrayed by Sing Out! as "one of the most versatile" and "irresistible" lead vocalists in bluegrass. Nick Hornbuckle (banjo and vocals) has developed his own voice on the five-string banjo - his playing can be downright spine-tingling," said the L.A Daily News. Spokane, WA-based Greg Spatz (fiddle) is hailed as a "world-class bluegrass fiddler" by Fiddler magazine.  

Its always a thrill to see this group play live. So, come on down to The Tir Na Nog Theatre on Thursday, May 11th for the release of On That Other Green Shore. Youre sure to discover some new gems and hear some old favourites.
