4Jake Leg Stompers

Saturday, August 20, 7:00pm

118 N Walnut St, Murfreesboro, TN

Gallagher Guitar Co

On the strength of their impressive following, the Stompers began playing regularly at Nashville’s Station Inn and creating something of a buzz on the streets of Nashville. The Jake Leg Stompers increasingly started taking their chicken-fried, pre-war, hokum-billy jug music on the road- playing at regional festivals whether or not they were asked to. In their live shows, the Jake Leg Stompers present Pre-War roots music on period instruments in lively, authentic styles. The Stompers capture the rebellious spirit of pre-1941 American music from Memphis Jug bands to Appalachian Hillbilly to Fats Waller when folk music was still considered dangerous.
