The Rootstone Jug Band evokes a time before radios and recordings, when folk songs were
woven into the fabric of rural life. This group has studied and absorbed a range of regional
styles and old-time songs from Virginia are presented alongside material from the classic
jug bands and songsters of Memphis, all with a deep respect for the music’s origins. These
songs are essential ingredients in the American musical recipe, and in the hands of and
voices of the Rootstone Jug Band they come alive again!
The Rootstone Jug Band was initially scheduled to play an outdoor event at the Cape
Charles Yacht Center. Because of the uncertainty of the weather, the concert venue has
been changed to The Oyster Farm at Kings Creek located at 500 Marina Village Circle.
