John Reischman & the Jaybirds

John Reischman & the Jaybirds Double Bill Bluegrass Alert! John Reischman and the Jaybirds with Nomad Jones at Nelsonís Capitol Theatre!

John Reischman, one of the premier mandolinists of his generation, brings his band of Jaybirds to Nelson this October 25th, along with the exciting new group Nomad Jones for what will prove to be a thrilling evening of stellar acoustic music.

With the release this year of their stunning 7th album On That Other Green Shore, West Coast favourites and two-time Juno nominated John Reischman and The Jaybirds refuse to rest on their many past accomplishments. The secret to their success lies not only in their innovative arrangements and powerful original songwriting and tune composition, but also in the mix of talents that make up the group.

The addition of newest member Patrick Sauber has brought a bright new dimension to the groupís overall sound and feel.

A truly gifted ensemble popular on the bluegrass music circuit, their live performances are not to be missed.

Nomad Jones is a hot and happening Western Canadian bluegrass outfit equally comfortable ripping on rollicking classics or serenading on sultry ballads. Drawing from an extensive repertoire from traditional Ďgrass and beyond, Nomad Jones provides the full package with father-son harmonies and intriguing instrumentals, and some Kootenay folk will recognize Nelson's banjo-meister Craig Korth on the 5 string.

The band has been turning heads all summer long at the Blueberry Bluegrass Festival, the Coombs Bluegrass Festival on Vancouver Island and at the NimbleFingers Bluegrass and Old-time Music Festival in Sorrento.

Come on out for an entertaining evening of stellar bluegrass music!
