John Reischman & the JaybirdsMandolin powerhouse John Reischman and his Jaybirds perform some of the finest, hardest-driving bluegrass you're likely to hear anywhere, drawing material from both traditional masters such as the Blue Sky Boys and Ralph Stanley, and contemporary artists such as Gillian Welch. In the words of Bluegrass Unlimited magazine, "You can always count on the Jaybird’s unique sound, its mix of fire and laid-back elegance with a loose good-time feel."

Joining the Vancouver resident onstage in the form of the Jaybirds are some other famed folks from the West Coast bluegrass scene: Jim Nunally (Due West) on guitar and vocals, Greg Spatz (High Country) on fiddle, Seattle's famed Scruggs-style banjo stylist and vocalist Nick Hornbuckle, and Canadian bass ace and singer Trisha Gagnon.

As heard on their most recent album, Vintage and Unique, the group's blend of instrumental virtuosity, inspiring material, and great vocal harmonies make for an exhilarating performance.
