The Ginger Jug Band.. in brief..
The original GJB as the name would suggest played "good time"
jug band blues material generally taken from the 1920s-1930s period. The
band's heyday was the early 1970s when they were in much demand, playing
at North Kent & S.E. London folk clubs.
In 2000 Geoff Beaumont, Tony Petto, Rick
Harper, Andy Beaumont, and Andy's son Tom got together to form Refried
Ginger Jug. This resurrected edition of the GJB played at the 2000
Broadstairs Folk Week and by popular request again in 2001 and 2002.
They were accompanied by Gideon Payne on blues harp.. Fans old
and new showed their enthusiasm for the band and music and even turned
up to Geoff's special "Jug Blowing Workshop" to learn the
finer points of playing the jug. See our Galleries
for the embarrassing photos....... now in 2006 we see a new album
of fine songs.. the band is no longer "refried!!"
