JIM KWESKIN - November 3rd 7:30pm (doors@7) $20

Jim Kweskin is probably best known as a singer, bandleader and founder of the Jim Kweskin Jug Band. The Jug Band’s imitators were legion, including a San Francisco jug band that became the Grateful Dead and a New York jug band that became the Lovin’ Spoonful. Kweskin also 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 with the communal simplicity of a folk artist.
