The world is big and even in the springtime of love, we're all lonely sometimes. Bumper Jacksons founders Jess Eliot Myhre and Chris Ousley team up with artist and puppeteer Emily Schubert to create a collaborative, multi-media folk show about love and longing.
Entering a Bumper Jacksons Duo show is warm and inviting, like opening the front door of a neighbor who's just taken bread out of the oven. Roots jazz rhythms and country swing harmonies are vignetted by stories and sounds of Appalachia. Come in, take a seat, and be woven into a musical story that never stops being told. Bumper Jacksons' 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 fresh originals and dusted-off tunes from their great-grandparent's coat closet. But don't let their disarming folksiness fool you: their performance is silver-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 while both Jess and Chris as individuals are award-winning songwriters, alumns of the Strathmore Artists-in-Residence program, and regular Maryland State Arts Council grant recipients.
