Listen: Gary Louris at Truck America Festival

At the Truck America Festival last weekend, Gary Louris played a set of his solo and Jayhawks material, and provided an excellent preview of this much anticipated reunion. Gary’s unique baritone has not worn with age, and his guitar work is as melodic as ever. To close the set, Gary was joined by the “barn band”, which included the Bennett brothers, Tim Easton and Cat Martino. The group performed three numbers, including “best of” Jayhawks classics “I’d Run Away” and “Blue”, and if fan pages are to be believed, the finale brought tears to the eyes of Jayhawks devotees.
