Gilford, NH — Lakes Region favorite Justin Jaymes, who played the Magic Hat Stage before and after Zac Brown’s concert last summer, returns for the Acoustic After-Show, Saturday and Sunday nights, August 16 and 17, starting at 11:00 pm. An in-demand singer/songwriter who has played up and down the East Coast, Jaymes will feature songs from a new album written with Academy Award winner Ernest Thompson (ON GOLDEN POND).
Thompson, who met Jaymes at last year’s Celebration for the late, great Joe Droukas, will appear at this year’s shows to introduce Jaymes and the amazing range of new material complementing Jaymes’s extraordinary guitar style and irresistible voice. “Home of the Brave” has already been embraced by loyal audiences in New Hampshire and Maine, along with “Rehabilitated” and “Forgive.” Jaymes will play those instant classics along with other Thompson|Jaymes compositions.
Jaymes, a performer who takes audiences on a roller coaster ride with his infectious sound and harmonica blazing, has shared the stage with Blue Öyster Cult, Papa John Creach, Spencer Davis, Aztec Two-Step, Jonathan Edwards, Diamond Teeth Mary, Blind Willie Smith, and, like Thompson, wrote songs with the unforgettable Droukas.
Thompson, lyricist for “The Father Daughter Dance,” written with and recorded by Carly Simon, and the anthemic “Boston Strong,” receiving enthusiastic radio play throughout New England, has collaborated as well with Joan Osborne, Mighty Sam McClain, Natalie MacMaster, Joe Droukas, Ray Porcell and Joe Deleault, all featured on the soundtracks of his newest movies TIME AND CHARGES and HEAVENLY ANGLE, both shot in New Hampshire.
