"Bromborough Folk Club"

A wonderful evening which kept the audience fully entertained. - Bromborough Folk Club

"Bideford Folk Festival"

I was highly impressed with Jay Bradberry's blues-tinged, world-weary country vocals and splendid fiddle playing when I thought she was in her early 20s. To discover she was only 16 years old gave me shivers down the spine. "Sixteen? Surely not!" What a brilliant future awaits that distinctive voice. Co-performer Michael Giverin was wonderful, too, with his thrash funk and country mandolin grooves. Creative compositions and original arrangements put a refreshing twist on traditional styles, demonstrating a formidable innovative talent.”

Still working on that hot first release.



Michael and Jay first performed together in 2003 as 14 and 11 year old raw beginners under the auspices of Teacher, Mentor, and Inspiration Stu Williams. Even then it was clear that they were both going to become good musicians, what has happened since has far exceeded that initial promise. By the formation of Jaywalkers their mutual appreciation and musical synthesis was obvious to all of us who were around to listen.
Coming from the Bluegrass hotbed of Helsby (run by Bryn and Stu Williams) their initial repertoire was the vast catalogue of American fiddle tunes and Old Time standards. Since then however their interests have developed into Western swing, jazz, and domestic folk, all these styles can be heard in their unique arrangements, and they are now writing original material.
The highlight of their career to date was an appearance in the final of BBC Radio 2‘s Young Folk Award 2009 at the QE Hall, London, since then they have performed at festivals and venues across the country.
The full blooded power and soulful quality of Jay’s voice and Michael’s virtuoso mandolin playing are particular features of their music and a Jaywalkers live show is not to be missed.
