John Reischman released his original tune “Salt Spring” on the debut album of his band John Reischman and the Jaybirds in 2001, and the tune has been a mandolin-player favorite ever since. 

This fall, John was one of four Peghead Nation instructors (with Joe K. Walsh, Evie Ladin, and Brittany Haas) who taught at the recent Great Lakes Music Camp in West Olive, Michigan, along with many other luminaries of the roots music world. 

For the instructor concert at camp, John gathered a great band consisting of Joe on mandolin, Darol Anger on fiddle, Missy Raines on bass, and Hayes Griffin on guitar, and they played this rousing version of “Salt Spring” for the camp students, staff, and visitors. It’s fun to hear John and Joe harmonizing on mandolin on this tune!
