Master mandolinist John Reischman and the fabulous Jaybirds will bring their progressive Bluegrass sounds to Taghum Hall on Monday, October 31 at 7:30 pm. 

“While there’s nothing spooky about the choice of performance date, zombie banjo players who turn up for the concert might come away with a prize,” says Taghum hall spokesperson Anne DeGrace. “We’re so thrilled to have this band who refused to be scared off.”

Reischman is joined by guitarist Patrick Sauber, vocalist Trish Gagnon, Nick Hornbuckle on Banjo, and Greg Spatz on fiddle. With seven albums to their credit, the band has received two Juno nominations and a Grammy Award, while Reischman received a Juno nomination for his 2021 solo album New Time & Old Acoustic. 

“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,” wrote Bluegrass Unlimited magazine.

Tickets are $20 and available at Eddy Music, Taghum Shell, or by emailing taghumhall@shaw.ca. Doors open at 7 pm.
