John Reischman and the Jaybirds joined dozens of other bands for the International Bluegrass Music Association’s annual World of Bluegrass gathering this month, playing showcases for fans, festival and venue promoters, and fellow musicians. John has led the Jaybirds for over 20 years, recording seven albums of original and traditional tunes and songs, including their 2017 release, On That Other Green Shore. 

Along with John, the Jaybirds are Patrick Sauber on guitar, Trisha Gagnon on bass and vocals, Nick Hornbuckle on banjo, and Greg Spatz on fiddle. 

In this video, they play the traditional song “Hop High My Lulu Gal,” which they recorded on their 2005 release The Road West.
