It’s that time of the year again, where one of our (and your) favourite acts return to Blue Sky. Always a massive hit; the charming young folk Trio that are Jaywalkers are back to brighten up your Friday night. As those who have been fortunate enough to catch them in full flight will testify, a Jaywalkers show is an exhilarating experience. UK-based they may be but many from the other side of the Atlantic have complimented them on their particularly stylish delivery of this virtuosic brand of Americana. These three outstanding musicians have developed a tight bond, demonstrated through their well-crafted, tasteful arrangements and ability to bounce ideas around the stage. The combination of powerhouse bass, flame-fingered mandolin, blistering fiddle and three-part harmony pack a punch as fiery as Jay’s lead vocals and make a fuller sound than expected from an acoustic trio.
Jaywalkers are a real melting pot of their collective inspirations and the influences of their musical upbringings. This is evident in their live sets which come to life in their use of Country heartbreak and Bluegrass dynamism applied to issues of the modern day and life as a touring band…mostly stuck on the M6.
What others are saying:
“A really fine album by a talented trio .. that simply gets better with repeated plays”
“Warmth, energy, thoughtful writing, beautiful vocals and fine ensemble playing.”
Northern Sky Magazine
“A beautifully performed take on Americana” RnR Magazine
“Jaywalkers are the real deal… three incredible musicians creating a bluegrass party on stage. There must have been some dark trades with the devil to give Mike Giverin such mastery of the mandolin and Jay Bradberry such skill with fiddle and voice.” Folk On Monday
“A band convincingly hitting their stride” Songlines
“Stunning three-part harmonies, soaring fiddles and fearless mandolins” Country Music Magazine
“mesmerising and attention-grabbing yet without shouting its prowess.”Folk Radio UK
