Audiences from New England to the Northwest, east coast and west, have been captivated by the honest, intelligent, original and collected songs of Judi Jaeger (JAY-gur) and Bob Reid, the delicate interplay of their voices and guitars and the stunning harmonies which brought them together.
They will be joined at The Back Room by their cellist, Michelle Kwon. Prepare to be moved.
“Moving, kind, and beautiful material - both covers and originals - speaking to powerful emotions and important issues in our world today. Wonderful harmonies for a world in need of harmony.” - Marc Stern, WMBR/Cambridge, MA
“Jaeger & Reid fill the air with amazing energy, unique harmonies and insightful original songs that are both meaningful and memorable. Their musical synergy is truly infectious!” - Neil Scott, iHeart Radio
“Smart, with heart!” -“Auntmama” Moorman, KBCS-FM
"As contemporary singer-songwriters, Judi Jaeger and Bob Reid are strictly top tier. They know how to work within the folk idiom to craft a song that is personal and introspective without ever being self-indulgent.
That skill alone sets them apart from most of the pack, but that is not all they have to offer. For Judi and Bob can take a familiar song, a chestnut if you will, something from Bob Dylan or John Lennon, make it their own, and shine a new light upon it.
Let's be honest. Any competent musician can cover an old standard. But it takes a particular combination of insight, intelligence, talent, skill, and courage – yes, courage – to let us see and hear the nuances and intricacies that were always there, but which perhaps we had never previously noticed. Judi and Bob, I am pleased to say, possess that very rare combination." - Steve Suffet, Peoples' Voice Cafe, New York, NY
