The Jayhawks were swimming against the tide when they first emerged from a crowded Minneapolis music scene in the 1980s. Forging a rootsy sound that wasn’t quite rock or country (“Hank Williams on speed,” somebody once called it), The Jayhawks created a new musical blend that combined the elegant folk-rock of the Byrds, the adventurousness of Buffalo Springfield, and the soaring harmonies of the Beach Boys. Still touring three decades later, The Jayhawks continue to push the envelope with dynamic performances, graceful sounds, and new thematic juxtapositions, all the while retaining their unmistakable buoyancy and spirit.
