Jaywalkers are performing in the Studio as part of our new Studio Folk programme - a series of intimate gigs performed by the rising stars of the folk scene.
Since reaching the finals of the BBC Young Folk Awards in 2008, Jaywalkers have cemented their place as one of the most exciting, virtuosic and entertaining young bands working on the British Folk scene.
Tracks such as 16 Miles, Early for a Thursday and Weave are some of their most celebrated recordings, and their Songs We Like E.P which was released last year has won them new fans across the country.
Effortlessly creating a unique sound based on their collective and individual musical backgrounds, the band takes influence from folk, bluegrass, country and western swing, which forms into virtuosic instrumentals, three part harmonies and impressive slap bass. The band's mix of good humour, expertly crafted arrangements and traditional folk flair blend together perfectly.
“Jaywalkers effortlessly blend British and American folk traditions to create something arguably greater than either of these genres." - Acoustic magazine
