The Kelburn Viaduct Municipal Ensemble Jug Band (KVMEJB) had its genesis in August 2013 when Pip Payne, Neil Worboys, Bill Wood, Maurice Priestley, and Steve Carlyle, banded together with the avowed intention of playing Jug Band Music together. Jug Band Music played an important part in the development of their individual DNAs and a vital source of inspiration for all things musical.
Kelburn Viaduct Municipal Ensemble Jug Band music is a mix of original songs, which intentionally and vaguely follow the styles of Robert Johnson, Leadbelly, the Jim Kweskin Jugband and other inspirational pioneers of blues and jug band music, and cover versions of the above-mentioned heroes.
So excited to see this Jug Band and wonderful musicians! There will be a light supper after their concert, followed by an open mic - 1 song each. A fantastic night out at the Levin Folk Music Club!
