Redgirl is a light shade of bluegrass with some visible folk roots showing. Fronted by the clear and fearless vocals of Anie Hepher: Redgirl’s music is built around her  pure and unfettered voice, clawhammer banjo, guitar and occasionally, a sassy ukulele. Michael Hepher (married to the girl) on lead guitar, mandolin and backing vocals, brings a balance in harmony, humour and musical creativity to the songs and stories of the band. Bringing it all home with wholesome and steady bass lines is Steve Jones on his “new” 1953 Kay upright bass.

With five critically acclaimed albums, two Juno nominations, and two Canadian Folk Music Award nominations, John Reischman and the Jaybirds have Canada’s attention. The group fashions a stylish, elegant take on bluegrass that is innovative and unadorned. A genial blend of storytelling and side-show humour provides the backdrop to their studied performance of original songs and newly arranged traditional material.
