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. 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.

About Chenango Craftsman Houseconcerts
Chenango Craftsman Houseconcerts take place at the home of Sarah Gerk and Andru Bemis in the Northside of Binghamton, New York. Because of the intimate nature of the space, and to ensure a seat for you at the show, we encourage you to make advance reservations through Brown Paper Tickets. After your payment, we will email the address to you. 100% of audience donations go directly to the artist.
Guests without advance reservations may make their donation –cash or check — on the night of the show, and will be seated according to availability. Reasonably well-behaved kiddos and babies are always welcome.
Doors open at 6:30 pm. Join us for potluck-style food, snacks and drinks before the show, if you wish. Don’t feel that you must bring something to be included; there’s always enough for everybody. Music starts at 7:30 pm. Jim Kweskin will play till 9 pm or so. Feel free to stay and visit after the show, and don’t be afraid to arrive late or leave early if your schedule requires it.
We’re looking forward to seeing you at the show!
