Forged on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers during the nineteenth century, jug
band music was the early soundtrack for a new nation.
Louisville was at the
heart of it all. German and Irish immigrants, former slaves en route to
Chicago and homesteaders moving into the city created a fertile ground for
this new sound. Artists like Earl McDonald and his Original Louisville Jug
Band made the city legendary. Some stayed in this so-called money town,
passing on licks and melodies that still influence bands like the Juggernaut
Jug Band. T
