Steel City Jug Slammers (2) @ Pisgah Brewing Co. 8-17-2016
(Stream Recording) – Long ago there were many tales of a nameless, anomalous, blues ghost that roamed the lands in search of a vessel through which to expatiate its proficiency. It found a man named Ricky Tate. Shortly after, Rick heard tales of The Zookeeper, a man with a steel hand who fed only on ale, whiskey and blues. The boundless strings of fate connected them and the chronicle began.
Say hello to the Steel City Jug Slammers, a group of young musicians playing traditional and homemade instruments. Like juke-joint heroes of the early 1900s, they perform Delta blues and old-time jug music.
