Jami Lynn

Though Jami Lynn’s latest Americana album earned her a top 25 listing from the UK’s Telegraph, honors from the Planet Bluegrass Folks Festival Songwriting Competition, and one of Culture Spot’s “50 artists to watch,” don’t rule out her jazz chops.

Jami’s roots are in the old-time country, folk, and polka of the Northeastern South Dakota jamborees of her childhood, but a love for the great ladies of jazz developed right alongside her love of the banjo. While solo jazz pieces by Billie Holiday, Fats Waller, and Gershwin always work their way into solo performances, sitting in with the Sioux Falls-based, Dakota Jazz Collective, and jazz/funk band, Polyphase, has eventually led Jami to a full-on collaboration with bassist Andrew Reinartz.

When not performing for public audiences, Lynn also brings folk music to elementary students and hospital systems through the SD State Arts Council’s Artists in the Schools program and Touring Artists program. She is currently based out of Spearfish, SD.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
