Born in North Carolina in 1970, Jonathan Byrd released his first album in 2001. Stylistically, his music falls into the category of Americana/roots with a strong focus on narrative ballads that address issues of life and loss in the American heartland.

He typically performs solo on acoustic guitar, but for his upcoming show at the Exchange he’s touring with Toronto folk artist Corin Raymond who will likely sit in with him for at least part of the set.

The show is being presented by Grassroots Regina and goes at the Exchange on Saturday April 9 at 8 p.m. You can get more info on the Grassroots Regina website, but tickets are $20 advance and $25 door.

Here’s the video for Jonathan Byrd’s 2015 song “Love Is The Law”:
