BBC Young Folk Awards finalists in 2008, Jaywalkers are one of the most exciting, virtuosic and entertaining young bands on the British Folk scene. Their unique sound takes influences from Folk, Bluegrass, Country and Western Swing music in superb instrumentals, three part harmony and impressive slap bass. Add good humour, tasteful arrangements and exceptional musicianship all guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
The past year saw them make many live appearances and the release of their highly acclaimed third album, Weave. Expect original songs inspired by stories and poetry from Mike’s home county of Lancashire starting around the time of the Industrial Revolution with strong themes about the trials of life.
But it’s not all doom and gloom! Their set is littered with blistering, foot-stomping, up-tempo instrumentals and more cheerful traditional songs to cheer the heart.
