Raised in an Alaskan family band, on the stages of various New York City, Hudson Valley, and Pacific Northwest music clubs, Jack Dwyer has embraced his far flung roots-music background and found his voice as talented songwriter, singer, and multi-instrumentalist. A skilled and seasoned bandleader and sideman, Jack brings a wide musical vocabulary and years of ensemble experience to bear when he takes the stage as a solo performer. His songs move seamlessly through the American canon (classic country, swing jazz, honky tonk blues, bluegrass, and bayou-influenced Americana) and feature an uncommon combination of depth and variety that sets him apart from most songwriters.
Jack has performed professionally for the last 18 years, giving 100+ shows a year, including appearances as a solo performer, bandleader, or sideman at many festivals, including:
Pickathon (OR), String Summit (OR), Wintergrass (WA), The Mandolin Symposium (CA), Shakori Hills Festival (NC), Harvest Festival (AR), New York Ukulele Festival (NY), Woodstock Film Festival (NY), Big Apple Bluegrass Festival (NY), Long Island Bluegrass Festival (NY), Clearwater Festival (NY), Juan de Fuca Fest (WA), Boats and Bluegrass Festival (MN), Subdued Stringband Jamboree (WA), Bellingham Folk Festival (WA), North Cascade Bluegrass Festival (WA), Portland Old-Time Gathering (OR), Oregon Country Fair (OR), Olympia Old-Time Festival (WA), Anchorage Folk Festival (AK), Granite Creek Bluegrass Festival (AK), East Vancouver Old-Time Social (BC, CAN), Folklife Festival (WA), Dungeoness Crab Festival (WA), The Wooden Boat Festival (WA), Port Townsend Film Festival (WA), and more…
