Jess Reimer & Jer Hamm

Genre: bluegrass, americana, folk, country
Jess and Jer met in the fall of 2002. Jess left him a note asking him to come to a rehearsal. Jer pulled up in his butter yellow 1980 Chev and there began a decade long bluegrass outfit including Jess’ father, tenor vocalist and song writer, Doug Reimer and banjoist, Tim Osmond. There also began a marriage, a family and a business: a guitar building school. These days Jer and Jess live in their big, old brick house in La Riviere, MB with their free range kids. The intimacy of married life, the loving and ‘unloving’, seeps into their duo performances. Jer plays mandolin, fiddle, and guitar along with Jess’ original tunes that sound traditional. He also builds and repairs their instruments! Together they have toured Canada from Halifax to Vancouver and the US from New York to Seattle. Jess and Jer’s music combined with their ‘married couple schtick’ is kind of like mixing Gillian Welch and David Rawlings with The Bickerson’s.
