For decades, practically every big circus on the road had a black band and minstrel company attached to its sideshow, performing on the streets and inside the sideshow tent before people of all races, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and from the southern reaches of Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. During the 1910s, these companies constituted a significant pathway for the dissemination of ragtime, blues, and jazz." - Lynn Abbott and Doug Seroff, Ragged But Right: Black Traveling Shows, "Coon Songs", And The Dark Pathway To Blues And Jazz

National Jug Band Jubilee (Louisville, KY)
« on: August 14, 2017, 08:49:40 PM »
The 13th Annual National Jug Band Jubilee is September 16 in Louisville, Kentucky. This year's lineup includes Jerron Paxton and Tuba Skinny; the complete lineup is here:

This is a very easy festival to attend -- it's free, in a pleasant park on the Ohio River -- with music running from 1 pm to 11 pm on Saturday. Several of the performers will have smaller gigs throughout Louisville the night before, and I'm hosting a jam the night before at Goodwood Brewing.

While you're in Louisville, you can visit Churchill Downs, the Mohammed Ali Center or the Louisville Slugger Museum, or go to Louisville Cemetery to see the gravestones of Earl McDonald, Sara Martin and Sylvester Weaver.
