Jaywalkers

On tour with their brand new album, one of the UK's finest Acoustic Americana, Bluegrass & Country bands are heading to Leicester on Thursday 18th April.

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.

This winter, Jaywalkers are on a full UK tour to support the release of their brand-new album 'Time to Save the World', released in early November. This is their 4th studio album, recorded during the peak of the 2018 summer heatwave with the extremely talented Josh Clark as producer, and is Jaywalkers' finest body of work to date. Featuring 10 original songs (and a Johnny Cash cover for good measure) their new music plays on the strengths of each member all encompassed by Mike's musically crafted and lyrically perceptive song writing. The 25-date tour starts in early November and continues through to the end of February 2019, culminating in a home-town gig at the newly built, state of the art Storyhouse in Chester.

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. Their sets on the night will be an eclectic mix of old and new songs with a strong emphasis on the material from the new album. But there will still be some of their old favorites, along with well-established blistering, foot-stomping, up-tempo instrumentals and more cheerful traditional songs to entertain the soul and cheer the heart.
