We are jug-band blues and old-time country with a high-energy, dance-inducing result. The beat-thumping rhythm section, which includes a home-made one-string bass and drum-set and an authentic, antique jug, is complimented by a new-music-oriented horn section, and traditional string instruments.

Biography

The Barehand Jugband is a six-member, Chicago-based band that combines jug-band blues and old-time country with a high-energy, dance-inducing result. The beat-thumping rhythm section, which includes a home-made one-string bass and drum-set and an authentic antique jug, is complimented by a new-music-oriented horn section, and traditional string instruments.

Whether performing as an opening act for national touring bands, ranging from Jim Kweskin and Geoff Muldaur to Split Lip Rayfield, or headlining their own bill; the jugband raises the ruckus for every crowd.

Don’t miss a chance to see the Barehand Jugband live.
