Jug bands got their name from using instruments that were either homemade or household items such as a jug. On this WoodSongs broadcast, we'll be celebrating the music and history of jug bands with musicians from across the country. JIM KWESKIN is a folk music legend and founder of the legendary 1960s Jim Kweskin Jug Band which successfully transformed the sounds of pre-World War II rural music into a springboard for their good-humored performances. JERRON "BLIND BOY" PAXTON transforms traditional jazz, blues, folk, and country into the here and now. Hailing from NYC, his sound is influenced by the likes of Fats Waller and "Blind" Lemon Jefferson. THE STEEL CITY JUG SLAMMERS made a name for themselves in Birmingham, AL with a new album, extensive touring and the band's recent induction into the Jug Band Hall of Fame. WoodSongs Kids: The Wallace Sisters have been harmonizing together since they could talk. The siblings from Lexington, Kentucky enjoy singing for their schools and church choir but a year ago began singing officially as a trio at local events.
