John Reischman & the Jaybirds
 December 1, 2017

It is always a thrill to welcome back to the Cowichan Valley, one of the very best roots and bluegrass bands in Canada.  

John Reischman & the Jaybirds have released five critically acclaimed albums since their debut over 15 years ago. In that time the band has been nominated for a Juno award and multiple Canadian Folk Music Awards, and won legions of fans all around North America. For decades John has been one of the most celebrated and in-demand mandolin players on the roots and bluegrass scene. Besides playing with his band The Jaybirds, John has solo albums out, has been an in-demand session player, and has shared the stage with the very best artists in the world. All the members of the Jaybirds are world-class artists in their own right, with each sharing songwriting duties, and the spotlight in their remarkable live shows. The band is John on mandolin, Trisha Gagnon on bass and vocals, Nick Hornbuckle on banjo, Greg Spatz on fiddle, and new guitar player Patrick Sauber, who has a long career as a top guitarist, also appearing in films such as A Mighty Wind.  

This is going to be a very special show, as the Jaybirds concerts consistently are every time they play the Cowichan Valley.  Hope to see you there!
