North Carolina's Jonathan Byrd To Play House Concert Saturday

Published on Mar 21, 2016

North Carolina singer-songwriter Jonathan Byrd will perform Johnny Waken, aka "the Pickup Cowboy" on Saturday March 26 at 8:00 p.m. in a house concert at a private home in Sudbury. All are welcome. Email Scott Merrifield at for the address, details and reservations.

Space is limited so book your spot right away. You must make reservations in advance. Admission is $20 per person and the proceeds will go to the artists. Bring whatever you want to drink and, if you like, something to contribute to the snack table.

Jonathan Byrd is “one of the top 50 songwriters of the last 50 years,” says Rich Warren of WFMT in the Chicago Tribune. Scott Alarik of the Boston Globe says, “This rootsy North Carolinian may be the most buzzed-about new songwriter in folkdom. He displays John Prine’s gift for stark little songs that tell big, complex stories, Guy Clark’s lean melodicism, Lyle Lovett’s wry mischief, and Bill Morrissey’s knack for the revealing image.”

Byrd grew up singing in the Southern Baptist church, where his father preached and his mother played piano. After four years in the Navy, he returned home to play in rock bands. 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 began to write new songs in an older style. 

Jonathan’s latest album ‘You Can’t Outrun The Radio’ was made available in Fall 2014.
