John Reischman and the Jaybirds

Mandolinist John Reischman lives in Vancouver, and rarely tours in the East. He was a pioneer in the California progressive bluegrass sound of the 70’s and 80’s, with players like David Grisman, Laurie Lewis and Tony Rice, with whom he played for seven years. His current band plays a more traditional bluegrass style, and is one of the most highly regarded outfits in North America.
