Jonathan Byrd

Uptown Music Showcase

Show Information:

Jonathan Byrd Final“One of the top 50 songwriters of the last 50 years,” says Rich Warren of WFMT in the Chicago Tribune. Byrd grew up singing in the Southern Baptist church, where his father preached and his mother played piano. It was at an old-time fiddle festival in the mountains of southwest Virginia where his writing began to change. Assimilating the sounds of southern traditional music, Byrd wrote new songs in an ancient style. After 10 years as a full-time touring songwriter and 7 acclaimed albums, it seems this native of Cackalacky is getting the attention he deserves. www.jonathanbyrd.com
