This is the second release for the Roanoke, Virginia-based New Roanoke Jug Band.
They take their name and musical cues from the original Roanoke Jug Band that recorded four songs for the Okeh label in 1929. In his notes to the project, old-time music enthusiast writes, "The NRJB" don’t sound at all like the ‘carbon copy’ bands gigging most places these days. They combine authentic-sounding rural blues, jug music, and string band music with, oh my gosh, percussion! At this, Jay Griffin, on the washboard, is one of the best I’ve ever heard. Another of the band’s strong points is how they present the music – it is not placed upon a pedestal and revered, it is a living thing in their hands, becoming a part of them. Younger musicians, like Scott Baldwin, seem to flourish with such an approach, which is exactly how Jay nourished Scott’s interest. Now they are a great sounding team and appeal to a wide variety of fans and a huge range of ages."
This old-time “group” is essentially a young Roanoke, Virginia duo consisting of Scott Baldwin and Jay Griffin who play a variety of instruments between them on this, their 2nd album for Copper Creek. They are most successful on the bluesy songs and tunes on which Baldwin plays finger style guitar, like CABIN RAG, STIR IT GAL, JAILHOUSE RAG, PILGAR’S RUE, GOIN’ TO RICHMOND, SWEET MARIE, and John Hurt’s I’VE BEEN CRYIN’.
About half of the 20 pieces are old timey and feature Griffin on fiddle, with Baldwin adding guitar, banjo, harmonica or jug. Most of these are quite nicely done, like LONESOME BLUES, GREENBACK DOLLAR, COLD ICY FLOOR, JOHNNY LOVER, MY WIFE SHE HAS GONE & LEFT ME and the title tune. All in all, a low key, pleasant and enjoyable album.
