Get ready for a feast when James Reams & The Barnstormers bring their smorgasbord of bluegrass to the Rosendale Cafe! This band treads the terrain where bluegrass, old-time, classic country and rockabilly meet in the night to swap stories. These are the sounds of the hills and hollers seasoned with the flavors of factories, railroad yards, and honky tonks… a sure crowd pleaser!
A bluegrass band that was nominated by the International Bluegrass Music Association in 2002 as Emerging Artist of the Year, James Reams & The Barnstormers provide a contemporary take on traditional bluegrass; blending it with innovation and vitality to create their own branch on the “roots” tree.
In a review of an early album by James Reams, fRoots (an international magazine that specializes in world music) declared, “Traditional music kept alive by a stylish performer… Powerful, emotional music that needs to be heard.”
Country Standard Time wrote, “James gets to the heart of the music each and every time, whether interpreting an underheard classic of the genre, reinventing a country song, or performing one of his many excellent original numbers.”
