Sense Of Place Minneapolis: The Jayhawks

The Jayhawks.
John Vettese
The Jayhawks.

The Jayhawks' music has been a part of the Twin Cities scene for three decades now. Gary Louris and original member Mark Olson began playing together in 1985, right in the heart of the Twin Cities punk explosion. Their folk-influenced alt-country sound went a bit against the grain, but they teamed up to form one of Minneapolis' most beloved bands.

In today's World Cafe session, The Jayhawks' members preview their as-yet-unnamed new album, due out on their own Sham Records in the spring. Hear performances of the new songs (plus some old favorites), recorded live at Humans Win Studio in Minneapolis, and download "Quiet Corners And Empty Spaces" on this page.
