The Jayhawks Fly Solo

Gary Louris - Vagabonds Mark Olson - The Salvation Blues

Former Jayhawks frontman Gary Louris was at the Town Hall tonight (April 2) promoting his new solo record, Vagabonds (Rykodisc). Gary only has a couple of tour dates left, so in case you miss him on the road, you can check him out as a co-writer and performer on the new Dixie Chicks record and producer of The Sadies new album.

Mark Olson, the other principal songwriter of the Jayhawks released his first solo album, The Salvation Blues (Hacktone), last year and he’s heading out on tour in support of the The Salvation Blues documentary by NYC filmmaker Ray Foley. The Salvation Blues, the film, chronicles Olson and his merrymakers during a residency at Mo Pitkins in NYC last spring. Mark Olson will be performing at the Highline Ballroom on April 30th.
