Jonathan Byrd is a North Carolina flatpicker and a Texas songwriter, a Gulf War veteran and a preacher's son, and an award-winning songwriter whose songs you've probably heard, even if you haven't heard Byrd sing them. Covered by Tim O'Brien, Steve James, Red Molly, Jack Lawrence, Melissa Greener and more, Byrd's music will seem familiar to any Americana fan. The word began to spread in 2003, when Jonathan won the festival's 'New Folk' songwriting competition, a milestone for Americana's most influential artists. He is considered to be one of the finest young songwriters in the Americana genre... And this time, he is bringing a band that includes a crosscut saw player.
