Jaywalkers

Jaywalkers have been delighting audiences for over 10 years; taking their exciting, inventive and virtuosic brand of Americana up, down and around the UK and Europe. 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.

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.

“An effortless blend British and American folk traditions to create something arguably greater than either of these genres.”Acoustic magazine

“ Vibrant, tight and energetic.” ***** – R2 Rock’n’Reel

“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.” – FolkOnMonday

Support Act

Gerry fFrench

“Gerry Ffrench is a remarkable singer/songwriter from Liverpool. With her musical feet firmly in the tradition, she writes and performs superb songs that have a sense of story and reality. She is also an accomplished guitar and banjo player; it’s a compelling combination.”
Phil Beer. Germany September 2018.

Gerry is one of the finest singer-songwriters working in the Northwest today. Her Liverpool-Irish roots have helped nurture a wonderful performer, writer and recording artist of rich contemporary folk music.

With their strong local flavour, Gerry’s own songs make many references to Liverpool’s maritime history while their style is firmly rooted in traditional folk and shanty. Now she is embarked on a mission to record and celebrate a way of life which has all but disappeared from Liverpool and every other major seaport. The hard lives of the sailors’ wives have never been fully given a voice in the same way that the lives of their husbands and sons were; Gerry’s songs such as “The Other Maggie May”, “When the Wind Blows Up From The Mersey” and of course “Cunard Yanks” – do just that, telling the stories of the wives and the families left behind.
