John Reischman and the Jaybirds have toured and recorded together for over 20 years, and they recently joined the bluegrass faithful at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s annual World of Bluegrass gathering in Raliegh, North Carolina, playing showcases for fans, festival and venue promoters, and fellow musicians.

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 John’s original tune “Little Pine Siskin,” which John recorded on his 2013 album Walk Along John, and which John teaches in his Melodic Mandolin Tunes course on Peghead Nation.
