Interview with Gary Louris of the Jayhawks

A man sits facing the camera with  his hands in front of him.

Gary Louris is a founding member of Minnesota band the Jayhawks, who've been together for over 35 years. As a songwriter he's written some of the Jayhawks best-known songs as well as collaborating with many artists including The Chicks, Tedeschi-Trucks Band, Nickel Creek and Kelly Willis. He's also produced albums for his own band and others. We talked with Louris in advance of a rare solo show at Duluth's Sacred Heart Music Center about his songwriting, the livestreams he started doing during the pandemic, moving to Canada, his plans for a third solo album, and his brand new Christmas single, "Christmas in the City."
