John Reischman and the Jaybirds

Grammy winner John Reischman is one of the most respected mandolinists in North America - a sought after instrumentalist and bandleader as well as performing with legendary bluegrass groups The Tony Rice Unit and The Good Ol’ Persons.

Reischman is joined by accomplished banjoist Nick Hornbuckle and honey-voiced Trisha Gagnon on double bass. Talented LA-based guitarist Patrick Sauber and acclaimed guest fiddle player Annie Staninec (standing in for regular band member Greg Spatz) complete the quintet.

Performing and recording together for almost twenty years,  John Reischman and the Jaybirds enjoy seven critically acclaimed albums, two Juno nominations and two Canadian Folk Music Award nominations.

John Reischman and the Jaybirds achieve an elegant take on bluegrass that is at once happily old-fashioned, yet with a fresh contemporary feel. Their understated humour complements impeccably performed original songs, instrumentals and traditional material.

"If you want solid, no-nonsense bluegrass music these days, you won’t go wrong with any release by John Reischman and The Jaybirds." – The Green Man Review

“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.” – Bluegrass Unlimited

"On That Other Green Shore showcases an accomplished, experienced band at the peak of their powers, with musicianship of the very highest order." – Folk Radio U.K.
