Del played tougher than a boiled owl, and I still pity the fool what's got to follow her on to the stage. She sang prettier than many a woman with a guitar known primarily for their voice. Her original instrumental, Wobbly Walk, inspired by chapters 16-18 (Debbs and Socialism) of Howard Zinn's classic People's History of the United States is a hoot and conjures up a Chaplanesque Bo of old, IWW card fresh in hand, struttin' his stuff - Mr O'Muck review, Opera House gig somewhere off the mainland, Maine, USA

That is a Stella 12 that Paul is playing in that video.  Nice clip.  Thanks for posting it.

Kind a cool.

Were there 2 Kweskin jug bands? or am I wrong that his jug band was the "Even dozen Jug Band"?

Jim Kweskin leading and singing, Maria singing, Fritz on jug or washtub, and Geoff Muldaur playing guitar and banjo. Sure looks like th JKJB to me. I forget who the fiddler was. But I don't see Stefan Grossman, a prominent member of the Even Dozen, anywhere on stage. Check Stefan Wirz's page for more info on the EDJB. Some of these folks did cross over between the two bands.

All for now.

Did the Even Dozen ever actually perform?  I thought it was just a studio one-off.

Hi all,
Kweskin's Jug Band was not the Even Dozen Jug Band.  The Even Dozen was on Elektra and Kweskin's was, at first, on Vanguard.  Personnel on the first Kweskin album:  Kweskin, Geoff Muldaur, Bob Siggins on banjo, Fritz Richmond, Bruno Wolf on vocals.  Second album added Maria D'Amato on fiddle and vocals, Bill Keith on banjo, and Mel Lyman on harmonica, and lost Bob Siggins.  I believe the only cross-over who was in both bands was Maria.
All best,
Johnm

Thanks for the clarification, John. I guess I should have said, "Some of these folks may have crossed over." -G-

After a cursory search I've found a lot of stuff of potential interest to Weenies on YouTube.com:

Muddy, Johnny Shines, R.L. Burnside, Kelly Joe Phelps, Cooder....

Of course, Stefan Wirz had the answer to my question, if only I had looked: "they made a couple of television appearances; and they performed several times in concert, twice at New York's Carnegie Hall." 

Thanks, Stefan!

What a great clip - maybe some tech guru will match up the video with the sound one day. 

I don't think the guitar is a resonator though, but a sunburst double hole acoustic - still weird ass though - this could be in the Todd Cambio line soon!  :P
