CD Testimonials

These albums are ..."not only great for the old hands at jug band music, but a great introduction for those people you know who have no idea what jug band music is all about.  Among the five bands, there is an incredible mix of all the styles that go into jug band music." - Dave Snyder


   “What wonderful CDs!  They sound great.  Well-recorded--catches the fun of the festival. Not only is each band experienced and talented but they are distinctly different from each other.  This is a great representation of the breadth and depth of jug band music.” 

Wayne Hagen, Organizer

Unique Jubilee Crockery Jugs

Clay. Water. Fire.

Elements that pre-dated our planet.

Since mankind first made tools and utensils, items fashioned from these simplest elements made life easier.

Almost two centuries ago, Louisville Stoneware’s predecessor company began using clay, water and fire for jugs to hold liquor so unique that it won for Kentucky the exclusive national right to produce a product called bourbon.

In early 20th century Louisville not all empty liquor jugs became trash. Some became tools in the hands and lips of skilled musicians. Another unique product emerged-- Jug band music.

JugbankIn tribute to those creative and enterprising descendants of slaves, Louisville Stoneware hand-fashioned 100 Limited Edition miniature replicas of those old gallon whiskey jugs preferred by jug band musicians. They are “piggy banks.”

Each jug is unique, with a value-enhancing number. Three great Jubilee volunteers--Mike Power (Jug #1), David Ross Stevens (#100) and Michael Reidy (#75)--received jugs for their dedication.

Jugs are available at $50.00
