Jonathan Byrd & The Pickup Cowboys

Jonathan Byrd is one of our favourite songwriters, period. Byrd is a preacher’s son, a Gulf War veteran, and an award-winning songwriter from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, known for literary, outsider songs that have become campfire favourites. The Chicago Tribune called Byrd “one of the top 50 songwriters of the past 50 years.” Award-winning multi-instrumentalist Johnny Waken is Byrd’s musical companion, joining him on the electric guitar, mandolin etc.

Jonathan Byrd and The Pickup Cowboys are musical gunslingers, vaudevillian hucksters, and old-fashioned tent revivalists. Between heartbreaking ballads and hell-raising sing-alongs, the Cowboys entertain and get audiences involved in the show.
