ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jim Kweskin rose to fame with his Jug Band at the forefront of the American folk revival in the 1960s and has continued making fine music ever since. Jim‘s debut album for Hornbeam is an entertaining and eclectic compilation of American and English folk songs. You’re in for a treat!

Jim Kweskin is probably best known as a singer and bandleader who gained national prominence in the 1960s with Jim Kweskin and the Jug Band. He created one of the bedrock guitar styles of the folk revival, adapting the ragtime-blues fingerpicking of artists like Blind Boy Fuller to the more complex chords of pop and jazz. He has maintained a remarkably consistent musical vision since his jug band days, continuing to explore traditional folk and blues with the sophisticated sensibility of a jazz musician and jazz with the communal simplicity of a folk artist. In recent years, Jim has recorded solo ventures, with long time collaborator and former Jug Band member Geoff Muldaur, and with rising stars Samoa Wilson and Meredith Axelrod. Jim continues to perform widely as a solo artist as well as in duo and performances.
