Roots jazz, country swing. Stories and songs of Appalachia. Come in, take a seat, and be woven into a musical story that never stops being told. The local American Roots favorites are hopping off their national touring schedule and returning home to their duo roots for this show. Co-founders Jess Eliot Myhre and Chris Ousley lead with their signature sun-dappled vocal harmonies, and the multi-instrumentalists trade off on strings and horns, playing original songs and reimagined traditional tunes from early 20th century America. Entering a Bumper Jacksons show is warm and inviting, like opening the door of a neighbor who's just taken bread out of the oven. But don't let their disarming folksiness fool you: their performance is polished and highly-acclaimed. Bumper Jacksons have been honored multiple times as the Mid-Atlantic's "Artist of the Year" & "Best Traditional Band" by the Washington Area Music Awards; both Jess and Chris are award-winning songwriters, Strathmore Artists-in-Residence, Maryland State Arts Council grant recipients, and are on the Mid-Atlantic Touring Artists Roster.
