Music on Main: Jackstraw

Jackstraw - Stalking Monroe (Live on KEXP @Pickathon)

We’re excited for this week’s Music on Main featuring Portland’s best bluegrass band Jackstraw! Due to the heat, the show will be held in the lobby of Antoinette Hatfield Hall located right next to Main Street. Join us for great music, delicious food, and glorious air conditioning!

Bluegrass & Country Twang

Portland bluegrass band Jackstraw has been the flagship of the American roots movement since they formed in 1997. They know their bluegrass history and don't hesitate to pay homage to their heroes, like the Stanley Brothers, but this ain't your standard bluegrass band. These boys have a cutting edge take on bluegrass picking that they've developed over years of touring the United States and their original songs can sound as much country as old-time. This is bluegrass that belongs in a dusty honky-tonk, country twang as rooted in Bill Monroe as George Jones, an old-timey sound for a new age.
