Acoustic Evenings With Jefferson Jay: Wes Davis, Jason Burleson & Matt Reischling

After a successful fall season, the Acoustic Evenings series has returned to the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library. Local musician and presenter Jefferson Jay will host the evenings. Three performers will be featured on each program and will be available at the intermission reception and post-concert meet-and-greet. The project advances the Athenaeum's commitment to supporting San Diego talent.

The series continues on Friday, April 19, with much-anticipated return visits by Wes Davis and Jason Burleson, and featuring Matt Reischling.

About the Musicians:
Singer/songwriter Matt Reisching, of Confessions of a Corn Silo, has self-produced several albums, toured Italy, and even had his songs used in an award-winning Indie film, as well as in a Fox Sports baseball documentary. His songs include the things he thinks about daily: love, death, space, and the futility of the mind.

Wes Davis is a California-based songwriter and fingerpicking fellow who draws influences from Delta blues music and the great outdoors. In 2011, his CD #1 Blues Band was nominated for a San Diego Music Award in the category of Best Blues Album. In 2010, Wes starred in Dylan Avery's coffee documentary called Buzzkill. Look forward to original songs peppered with a few classics by folks like Robert Johnson, John Prine, Mississippi John Hurt, and Lyle Lovett.

Jason Burleson is currently a full-time student of psychology, part-time pourer of potations, and sometimes singer of songs. With an acute attention to detail, Burleson handcrafts his creations with as much care as he does his third-person autobiographies. His music has been known to make a hush fall over a crowd and tangas to fall over talocrural regions. You are invited to enjoy yourself.
