There's nothin' better than jug band... and anything can be made into jug band (cover of debut albums for Lovin' Spoonful, Creedence Clearwater Revival). The key is you have to play the jug, even if just a few times a gig; we play it a lot. Right now, between four of us, we do jug, kazoo, metal resonator, banjo, harmonica, washboard (anything percussion, e.g. cardboard box, cheese grater...), bucket bass and lots of scat and hooting.

Put your ear to the tunes:
Mississippi Sheiks (my second favorite)
Cannon's Jug Stompers
Blythe's Washboard Ragamuffins
Cincinnati Jug Band
The Five Harmaniacs
Hokum Boys
King David's Jug Band
Ma Rainy and Her Tub Jug Washboard Band
Memphis Jug Band (my favorite)
Phillips Louisville Jug Band
Salty Dog Four
Seven Gallon Jug Band
Whistler's Jug Band

Contemporary:
Robert Crumb's Serenaders
Brooklyn Jug Band
Thunderpants Johnson
What Me Worry? Jug Band
Sassparilla (hot stuff)
Linebreakers
Kitchen Syncopators (awesome)
Jug Free America
Adam Tanner
The Hump Night Thumpers

And don't forget to listen to Kweskin!

:D

Yeah, well, envy is probably the word I should have have used. I do count myself very priviledged to have known, for most of my life, two great musicians. Geoff, above, is one, and the other a guy who drank himself to death a few years ago, who was one of these people who could pick up any instrument and within half an hour be playing it. Not just playing it, but composing on the thing. Just how do these guys do it? I love music, I love playing musical instruments, but it never achieves the naturalness that these people have. Just about everything I play is learnt by rote. No originality. So often these great talents seem squandered in some way.

Time I went to bed, I think, been down the pub all evening.

I'd be careful listenin' to music played by a left-handed slide banjo player who uses charts,lol! Their sound bytes are indicative of some tight music though...


Yes, it all looks a bit odd, especially the 2 slides :!: :!: but that man can belt out the blues and jug band music with the best of them. Banjo, mandolin, guitar and piano. Don't you just hate these people who can do everything and do it well :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

I even attempted a mandolin part, after roughly six hours as a player of that instrument. We got at least two of the songs down into a "good to go" form.
As Stan "The Man" Lee might say: "Excelsior"!

You ought to contact this mob. Most of them are living in Yorkshire somewhere I think. Certainly the slide banjo player is. Image

If you're interested, Andy, I've got a phone number and email address for Geoff (banjo player) I'll check that it's OK to pass it on to you.
