THE JAYWALKERS - SATURDAY 21 MARCH 2015
Astounding abilities and virtuoso talents.....the chemistry between them is electrifying.....
The summer of 2012 saw The Jaywalkers – BBC Young Folk Award finalists 2009 – cement their place as one of the most exciting, virtuosic and entertaining young bands working on the British folk scene. June 4th saw the eagerly awaited release of their 2nd album – Early for a Thursday – but their busy summer was already well under way, with the band performing at over 24 festivals, from the farthest reaches of the A9 in North Scotland to the Southern tip of Swanage and an Eastern-most point of Broadstairs (and many places in-between). There was just enough time to fit in a quick trip to Europe, where the band were placed 3rd at the European World of Bluegrass in Holland (making them the 3rd best Bluegrass band in Europe…or, that’s how we say it anyway).
