Event Description

John Reischman and the Jaybirds are landing in Vancouver on December 5 with a new EP tucked under their wings, entitled On a Winter’s Night. What better way to usher in winter than a new EP, celebrating Winter and the Festive season - please note you will not here a jingle bell on this new recording - rather, this is a collection of eight wintery traditional tunes. The EP was largely inspired by an album of seasonal folk songs released by the Seeger family - Mike, Peggy and Penny - in 1992, and features some pared down combinations of instruments as well as the full strength Jaybirds sound. John assures us you’ll enjoy this album as much with a mojito next summer, as you will with your egg nog this December. So, come down to the Rogue Folk Club and hear some new and old favourites with the Jaybirds on December 5.

With five critically acclaimed albums and two Juno nominations, the Jaybirds have established themselves as one of the freshest, most tasteful bands on the acoustic music scene today. The group fashions a stylish, elegant take on bluegrass that is at once innovative and unadorned, sophisticated and stripped-down, happily old-fashioned, yet unselfconsciously new. Their live shows feature their studied performance of original songs, instrumentals, and newly arranged traditional material mixed with the fun of watching the Jaybirds skillfully weave around one central microphone, and topped off with the band’s genial and often humorous MC work.

This is bluegrass done right, true to the roots but not afraid to look forward to new ideas. If you’re a fan of acoustic music, you know ­it doesn’t get much better than this.
