Old American Ragtime by the G Burns Jug Band’s
The G Burns Jug Band brings you back to old America of 20s and 30s, to the string bands, the heavy fiddle music and blues songs from women like Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith. Expect happy up-tempo traditional songs with bluegrass, roots and folk influences of this group.
“Music with an intensity and authenticity rarely heard today: urban Blues, mountain fiddle, and popular music of the nineteen-twenties and thirties.”
This music is very enjoyable and unique for the multiple instruments. The mixed vocals make the band able to perform a whole lot of song in a different style and with different soul. This is vintage American modern music at his best if you ask me.
