Meredith AxelrodMeredith Axelrod is a an accomplished multi-instrumentalist with a sure grasp of early jazz, rural blues, and pre-1930s American pop music, learned from a deep immersion in old 78s. She has performed with Dan Hicks, Maria Muldaur, the Cheap Suit Serenaders, R. Crumb, the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, and in a duo with Craig Ventresco. The website Jazz Lives calls her “an unusual combination of demure and passionate.”

 

Jim Kweskin is an American music pioneer. Rock critic Ed Ward once listed the most important bands of the early 1960s as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Byrds, and the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, adding: “I'm not kidding.” Of course he wasn’t kidding. Jim’s band became the original Americana band, playing everything from classic blues to hillbilly country, ragtime, jazz, and rock and roll, perfectly capturing the 1960s mix of exuberant anarchy and heartfelt sincerity. Jim has gone on playing jug band favorites, old time jazz tunes, and classic country blues, perfecting a low key, homemade sound that makes his skillful playing seem as easy as talking to a friend. Tonight is the CD release show for Jim & Meredith's new album, Come On In.
