Jessica Rhaye with Preeper and Mackay, is a folk trio comprised of award-winning songbird Jessica Rhaye, guitarist Bill Preeper and multi-instrumentalist Sandy Mackay. They began working together in the Bonnett House collective and Jessica's rock'n'roll band The Ramshackle Parade.

These three singer-songwriters work together in this acoustic trio, bringing lush 3-part harmonies and elegant accompaniment to the stage. It's folk music at its finest, pulling together works from Woody Guthrie, Ian Tyson, old-time folk and a mix of new original works. This group works in the folk tradition of Peter Paul & Mary, using intricate vocals like Crosby Stills and Nash.

Their version of Bob Dylan’s Blowing in the Wind has over 7 million views on YouTube and over 33K subscribers calling for more acoustic music.

Jessica Rhaye with Preeper and MacKay will be releasing and supporting their new folk album Wood & Wire in 2022/23.
