“The most important bands of the early 60s? Glad you asked: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Byrds, and The Jim Kweskin Jug Band. I’m perfectly serious.” (Ed Ward, Rock Historian, Fresh Air, National Public Radio)

“Mr. Kweskin’s music is a blend of blues, jug music, rhythm & blues and jazz – rag-timey stompdown party music.” (Alex Ward, New York Times)

“…one of the few survivors of the original Greenwich Village scene still on active service.” (Uncut Magazine, May 2017)

Hornbeam Recordings are delighted to announce the release of a new album of songs by the great Jim Kweskin. Jim’s pedigree as a singer and an interpreter of American song is second to none. At the forefront of the American folk revival, his jug band could have been a 60s pop sensation, but Jim decided to follow a different route, eschewing the glamour and the fame, honing his art in his own time and his inimitable way.

Jim joins the Hornbeam roster of great American artists that have been overlooked by fans of folk music, fans of American music and fans of the 60s revival.
