We are really excited to be bringing the fantastic Jaywalkers back to Biggar Corn Exchange, in partnership with Clydesdale Folk Club.
As those who have been fortunate enough to catch them in full flight will testify, a Jaywalkers show is an exhilarating experience. UK-based they may be but many from the other side of the Atlantic have complimented them on their particularly stylish delivery of this virtuosic brand of Americana. These three outstanding musicians have developed a tight bond, demonstrated through their well-crafted, tasteful arrangements and ability to bounce ideas around the stage. The combination of powerhouse bass, flame-fingered mandolin, blistering fiddle and three-part harmony pack a punch as fiery as Jay’s lead vocals and make a fuller sound than expected from an acoustic trio.
Jaywalkers are a real melting pot of their collective inspirations and the influences of their musical upbringings. This is evident in their live sets which come to life in their use of Country heartbreak and Bluegrass dynamism applied to issues of the modern day and life as a touring band…mostly stuck on the M6.
“A beautifully performed take on Americana… a multi-layered sound that belies their trio status”
“Stunning three-part harmonies, soaring fiddles and fearless mandolins … a powerhouse of Americana who can cook up a storm without the need to plug themselves into any cumbersome amplification.”
Country Music Magazine
“Jaywalkers’ musicianship is truly tasty: both deft and impeccable but never soulless, while the players’ togetherness and interplay is mesmerising and attention-grabbing”
Folk Radio UK
“An effortless blend British and American folk traditions to create something arguably greater than either of these genres.”
“Jaywalkers are the real deal… three incredible musicians creating a bluegrass party on stage. There must have been some dark trades with the devil to give Mike Giverin such mastery of the mandolin and Jay Bradberry such skill with fiddle and voice.”
