Sligo Creek Stompers and Bumper Jacksons
- This event has passed.
Sligo Creek Stompers play a raucous but refined blend of traditional roots music—Appalachian and midwestern old time; bluegrass; New Orleans-style traditional jazz; haunted Irish fiddle tunes; honky tonk and classic country; and Texas and gypsy swing. Inspired by scratchy 78 rpm records, contra dancing and a good bottle of whiskey, the Stompers are keeping the flame of American stringband music alive in the DC area.
Hot and sweet, the Bumper Jacksons traditional jazz and pre-war country repertoire paints America’s story from New Orleans’ brothels to Appalachian hollers. Each show is raunchy and riotous, with the occasional hush of tenderness. Unafraid to scrap together new sounds from a junkyard of forgotten 78’s, the Bumper Jacksons boldly and elegantly balance paying homage to the traditions while fashioning their own unique, DIY style.
