Lazybirds at 5 Walnut Wine Bar
The story of The Lazybirds is one of migration to these aforementioned mountains and of an impressive musical legacy built up over the last two decades. Playing a distinctive brand of jump blues, swing, country blues, classic country and early jazz, the music of The Lazybirds reflects the musical influences of this creatively-fertile region.
The Lazybirds tale began when original members Jay Brown and James T. Browne relocated to the western North Carolina Mountains from Alabama. Brown, who sings, plays harmonica, keyboards and is an acclaimed swing guitarist and fellow multi-instrumentalist Browne moved to the mountains in the mid-1990s and formed The
Lazybirds in 1996. Asheville, NC, native, tenor and resonator guitarist and mandolin player Brad Pope has been with the group for a year, and newcomer Asher Hill now plays the bass.
