Americana rockers The Jayhawks land at Fairfield Theatre Company’s Warehouse

Minneapolis’ The Jayhawks will bring their Americana/twang-rock to the Fairfield Theatre Company’s Warehouse Sunday, Jan. 20.

The influential alt-country rockers who emerged from the Twin Cities music scene in the mid-1980s have released 10 albums, including 2018’s “Back Roads and Abandoned Motels,” on Sony Legacy Records.

Along with two new songs written by singer/guitarist Gary Louris, the album mainly features songs co-written by Louris for previous projects, including “Come Cryin’ to Me” (Natalie Maines’ album “Mother”); “Everybody Knows” and “Bitter End” (Dixie Chicks’ album “Taking the Long Way”); and “Gonna Be a Darkness” (Jakob Dylan).

“These (songs) did not feel like covers,” Louris told Robert Crawford of Rolling Stone. “These songs all felt like they were in our wheelhouse.”

Fairfield Theatre Company’s Warehouse, 70 Sanford St., Fairfield. Sunday, Jan. 20, 8 p.m. $48. 203-259-1036, fairfieldtheatre.org
