Tuesday 2/18 JIM KWESKIN AND THE LOVESTRUCK BALLADEERS $20 advance / $20 at the door 7:30 doors / 8:00 show https://www.jimkweskin.com https://www.lovestruckballadeers.com Don't miss acoustic folk & jug band legend Jim Kweskin in concert at Lizard Lounge Cambridge with The Lovestruck Balladeers tonight! The Lovestruck Balladeers enchant audiences with their masterful performances and inspired repertoire of ragtime, jazz and beautiful songs from around the world. Their repertoire is a rare repository of American and international music seldom heard beyond the walls of low-lit dance halls at the edge of the known world. Jim Kweskin is the founder of the legendary 1960s Jim Kweskin Jug Band with Fritz Richmond, Geoff Muldaur, Maria Muldaur, Mel Lyman and Bruno Wolfe. During the five years they were together, they successfully transformed the sounds of pre-World War II rural music into a springboard for their good-humored performances. Their imitators were legion, including a San Francisco jug band that became the Grateful Dead, a Los Angeles jug band that became the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and a New York jug band that became the Lovin' Spoonful. No other group attained their unique blend of youthful energy and antiquarian expertise, tight musicianship, loose camaraderie, and infectious swing.
