James Reams & The Barnstormers, a long-established iconic bluegrass band that was nominated by the International Bluegrass Music Association in 2002 as Emerging Artist of the Year, will be appearing at Jalopy Theatre on Friday, May 19th, along with banjo sensation Lydia Sylvia Martin.
Music critic Jerry Paul (former editor of Acoustica) described lead singer James Reams as "an inspiration to watch. He truly feels his music, and sings from his very soul. If James is ever within your area, he is a ‘must see’ bluegrass icon.” James Reams & The Barnstormers provide a contemporary take on traditional bluegrass; blending it with innovation and vitality to create their own branch on the “roots” tree.
With a voice as pure as an Appalachian spring, but with a fierce mastery of her instrument and a delightful mix of southern-rooted tradition, Lydia Sylvia Martin taps into an inventive mix of styles that her adept banjo playing, natural vocals and arrangements bring to new life.For More InformationJalopy Theatre
