Learn to make the great jug band sound of African American string bands of the 1920s and 30s. This workshop will focus on instrumentation, performance techniques, and repertoire. You will learn to play two songs. Bring instruments or just come.
Lloyd Elliott is the warden and Miller Wise trustee of the Jailhouse String Band, which plays old-time music from the other side of the tracks — blues, ragtime songs, and early jazz tunes. Also join us at the California Jug Band Association Jam that follows in the same room.
