Project Description

Jim Kweskin & Geoff Muldaur

Jim Kweskin and Geoff Muldaur are founding members of the hugely popular 1960s group, Jim Kweskin & The Jug Band (also with Maria Muldaur, Fritz Richmond, and Mel Lyman) which is credited with setting the stage for Jerry Garcia’s first band, Mother McCree’s Uptown Jug Champions, and subsequently The Grateful Dead.

Jeff and Jim share a rare chemistry that was instantly renewed when they reunited as a duo in Tokyo in 2006. The distinctive qualities they brought to the Jug Band Kweskin’s clean, rhythmic finger picking and Muldaur’s emotional, quavering voiceremain their signature. When it comes to acoustic folk, blues, and ragtime, Kweskin and Muldaur are unparalleled exponents of the best American music.
