down a washboard and play a guitar chord and do a little do-it-yourself" ('Jug
Band Music', The Lovin' Spoonful)
Jug band music is often identified with homemade
and household instruments — a
jug for bass, a washboard for percussion, and a washtub bass (or gutbucket).
In this workshop, members of the CJBA will show you how to build (or
enhance) and play these familiar elements of a jug band and actually
make some goodtime music. Instruments will be available on which attendees
can practice their skills.
