Small House of Everything

Thursday, November 30, 2017


A popular group at Jim Rooney's Club 47 in Harvard Square (in the days when men were men , music was music, and Maria Muldaur wore really short skirts) was Jim Kweskin and the Jug Band.  Kweskin was joined by Fritz Richmond (who actually turned a quonset hut into a musical instrument when he was in the army), Geoff Muldaur, Muldaur's wife Maria (yes, those skirts were really that short), Mel Lyman (a very unhinged man),Bill Keith,  and others who shuffled in and out of the group.  

Good, knee-thumpin' music.

  1. I've only recently become aware of what happened to Kweskin, how he got involved with some odd folks and through that became primarily a real estate mogul. And that Paul Williams, the music/pop culture critic and editor of the complete short stories volumes for Philip Dick and Theodore Sturgeon had a brief affiliation with the same odd group. The things people get up to.
