Experience Music Series Presents Bluegrass Mandolin Master John Reischman

The Experience Music Series is thrilled to present mandolin master John Reischman in a rare solo concert. Viewers are invited to participate in a question and answer session with the artist following the performance. There is no charge to view, but donations are gratefully accepted. To join live, visit expmusicseries.com/youtube. “One of the true tone poets of American acoustic music” – Acoustic Guitar Magazine John Reischman, one of the premier mandolinists of his generation, will perform in a rare solo performance. He’s a master instrumentalist capable of swinging between re-inventions of traditional old-time tunes, deconstructions from the bluegrass repertoire, and compelling original tunes, many of which have become standards. He’s also a powerful bandleader, touring his band the Jaybirds all over Canada and the United States. John is also a cross-cultural trailblazer, extending his curiosity and experimentation to music from all over the world, including Latin American roots music, from Puerto Rican cuatro to Brazilian choro music. John Reischman embodies the true spirit of acoustic music in the 21st century. The Experience Music Series is presented by the Portland Community College Rock Creek campus Department of Music. The series is supported by the Oregon Cultural Trust and the Cultural Coalition of Washington County. The series receives additional support from the Reser Family Foundation and Oregon Arts Watch.
