The Legendary Jim Kweskin was the leader of the irreverent, eclectic and influential mid-1960's folk revivalists the Jim Kweskin Jug Band and has become a truly significant contributor to American music. Jim Kweskin's shows radiate of charm, humor, sophistication, as well as talent. Jim sings a collection of familiar songs by Benny Goodman, Johnny Mercer, the Sons of the Pioneers, Fats Waller and Somethin' Smith & the Redheads. There's an endearing sense of good humor to Kweskin's versions that makes his performances a charming delight. Jim rarely performs these days, which makes this show truly special.
